Classic Flapjacks

Classic Flapjacks 1.jpg text


Flapjacks are a quintessential British treat, made with just four ingredients they are cinch to make.

Classic Flapjacks 2

I love anything with oats in, no surprises then that I love flapjacks. Soft centred, chewy outer edges, golden toasted oats held together with butter, caramel scented muscovado sugar and the amber liquid of golden syrup. You can’t fault them really.

Recently on holiday I bought a¬†giant fruited flapjack and whilst sitting there taking in the glorious views and nibbling on my oaty snack I realised why has I not made these at home before. They take a matter of minutes to prepare, their baked in next to no time and don’t take long to cool down, there’s no excuse¬†not to make them. Classic Flapjacks 4

To make these simply do the following. Add butter, sugar and golden syrup to a medium-sized saucepan, you’ll be adding oats to this pan so make sure it’s big enough to stir everything together. Heat gently until everything has melted down to a golden pool of liquid, the smell will fill your kitchen with butterscotch notes.

Add the oats to the saucepan and stir making sure the oats get coated with amber gloss. Pour into your baking tin and spread out evenly pressing down firmly with your spatula. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown. Leave to cool then you can slice into whatever sized bar you please. I made 8 bars with this recipe but they are a generous size. Slicing into 16 squares will be a good enough size also.

Flapjacks can be made with dried fruit, nuts, seeds and chocolate chips but I wanted to strip them back to their roots. A simple oat bar with nothing else added, a classic flapjack.

These are perfect for packing up and taking with you on various journeys or to work as a little mid morning or mid afternoon snack. They travel well, meaning no mess and they also last for a week or more meaning no waste.

Buttery, moist, with a hint caramel flavour, totally moreish I may add too, they really are irresistible.

Packed with oats they will appeal to the oat lover, if your like me and can’t turn away an oat filled treat then you really should bake these little golden bars, if you like oats bake them anyway. You’ll end up liking oats tenfold.

Yields – 8 Bars

Ingredients

  • 150 grams (1 stick + 2 tablespoons) Unsalted butter
  • 75 grams (6 tablespoons) Light brown muscovado sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Golden syrup
  • 250 grams (2 3/4 cups) Rolled oats

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 160C (320F) and butter the bottom and sides of a 8 x 8 inch baking tin then line with parchment paper leaving overhang which will make it easy to put out. Set aside.
  2. Add the butter, sugar and golden syrup into a medium sized saucepan and heat on a low heat until everything is melted together. Add the oats and mix together thoroughly.
  3. Pour into your baking tin and smooth over, pressing with your spatula to make sure it’s pressed in firmly. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown. Leave in the tin on a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

Notes

* Recipe from Lyle’s Golden Syrup

* These will last for up to 7-9 days stored in a cake tin with a tight-fitting lid.

* Keep in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
