A lovely, moist crunchy flapjack with a hint of ginger - invented by Grandma Irene Bateman.


  • 2.5 tbsp golden syrup
  • 170g butter
  • 170g rolled oats
  • 85g castor sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp ground ginger
  • 0.5 tspn salt



You can add raisins to this mixture before putting in the oven, OR

  • you could add melted chocolate to the ends, as photo.
  • OR
  • you could just leave it plain old Grandma Irene's way!


  • STEP 1
    Melt butter and syrup in a pan.
  • STEP 2
    Add dry ingredients. Mix well.
  • STEP 3
    Pour into a long dish or shallow baking tray. The smaller the dish, the thicker and chewier the flapjack; the larger the dish the thinner and crispier the flapjack!
  • STEP 4
    Bake in a moderate oven, 180C/fan 160C/gas 4 for approximately 25 minutes or until golden brown and springy to the touch.
  • STEP 5
    Score pieces whilst hot, add chocolate if using, and leave to cool in dish.
