  • 250g Porrige Oats
  • 200g Butter
  • 100g Caster Sugar
  • 100g Demerara Sugar
  • 15g Golden Syrup
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, 375°F, Gas Mark 5. Grease a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

  2. Put the oats and salt into a large mixing bowl and mix well. Create a well in the centre of the mixture.

  3. Place the sugar and butter into a pan and heat until melted. Once melted, pour into the well and stir until mixed.

  4. Pour the syrup into the mixture and stir. It should appear really gooey and smell quite sweet.

  5. Place the mixture onto the baking tray and level it out. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top of the flapjacks is golden.

  6. Cut into 9 pieces (you can cut more or less if need-be) whilst still hot, leave to cool in the tray.

I love this recipe, I have tweaked it though.. 150gm Demerera sugar and 50gm of Castor. I don't really measure the golden syrup either, who does?! I have the oven turned down to between 160-170 degrees too. It is worth noting that as the edges cook faster than the middle, I have had most success using a deep tin/dish, that way I have prevented them becoming rock hard by overcooking. Taste wise these are the closest I have found to my mums recipe and I am sticking with it, these rarely last a couple of days in my house.

Wished I'd scrolled down to the first review by Citizen132 before I'd wasted my time and ingredients on this pile of crumbs that this rubbish recipe produces. These were meant to be for my colleagues. Can I present a plate full of crumbs? No not really. What a load of rubbish. I too will have to chuck it out and find another recipe. Bet the birds will love it.

These are the opposite to gooey, i followed the recipe perfectly and im left considering using it to replace a broken paving slab. When the recipe states "Gooey" in the title you would assume there was some element or gooeyness but these are just dry and crunchy. Im going to throw it in the bin and use a different recipe....maybe one called 'Dry Crunchy Flapjack'
