Quick & Easy Flapjack

I absolutely love flapjack as it’s such a quick and easy recipe, so of course I had to share it with you all! This particular recipe has been in my family for many years, being used in my nan and granddads bakeries. I’m not sure where it came from originally or if it was perfected with lots of practice, but it sure tastes delicious!

The ingredients you’ll need for the flapjacks:
275g Porridge Oats
175g Salted Butter
100g Light Brown Sugar
3 Tbsp Golden Syrup
Milk Chocolate (Optional)

One thing I really like about making flapjack is that the ingredients are usually always in the back of the cupboard meaning you don’t have to buy anything. Although even if you do, you can pick up the ingredients so cheap and make such a big batch! I don’t know exactly how many pieces this recipe makes as it really depends on what tin you use as to how thick the mixture is, but I tripled my mixture and used 2 square tins approx. 7 inches. If you want to be abit fancy you could also add different ingredients into your mixture before it goes in the oven, chocolate chips are always a good choice! Also raisins and sultanas, cherries or even mashed banana! The milk chocolate as I’ve said is completely optional, I’ve just used this to drizzle across my first batch of flapjack, and then completely spread across the other.

The recipe is as follows:
1. Preheat your oven to 180c or Gas Mark 4.
Heat the butter, sugar and golden syrup together in a saucepan until the butter has melted.
2. Taking the mixture off the hob, pour in the porridge oats and stir together.
3. Pour the mixture into a tin and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. How long the mixture is in the oven depends on how much mixture you’ve made, so just keep checking it doesn’t burn!
4. Once removed from the oven, let the flapjack completely cool before removing from the tin. Spread or drizzle the melted chocolate over the flapjack and cut into however many pieces you like.

I prefer really thick flapjack, as you can see by my photos and I particularly like to sit down with a cup of tea to enjoy! Has anyone else made any flapjack flavour combos? If so let me know in the comments as I’d love to try some new flavours.

Happy Reading!

Love Kirsty x

    Ooooh these look delicious, and how lovely that it’s a family recipe too. I made flapjacks once before and added some orange zest to one batch and lemon zest to another. But I know my family would prefer chocolate so thank you for sharing your recipe! X

    These look delicious. I am definitely going to try these. Are porridge oats same as rolled oats?

      If a recipe said rolled oats I would use porridge oats yes! 😊 I’ve just asked my mum too and she said it’s fine to use porridge oats as they are basically the same! Hope that helps x
