  • 4oz Butter (Lurpak salted tastes best)
  • 2oz Light Muscavado Sugar
  • 2oz Golden Syrup
  • 7oz Rolled Oats


    1. Preheat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5.
    2. Cover a square 7" or an 8" round tray with baking paper.
    3. Place the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a pan and heat gently until melted and the sugar has dissolved.
    4. Take off the heat and gradually stir in the rolled oats.
    5. Press evenly into the baking tray and bake on a high shelf in the oven for 15 minutes. The flapjack will still feel soft.
    6. Leave to cool in the tray for 5 minutes and then lift the baking paper up and out of the tray to cool completely. Cut into bars and enjoy!

this is a brilliant recipe, now made these several times, but I double the ingredients, and leave out the sugar. To stop them from crumbling I leave them in the dish to cool, then put them in the fridge overnight to harden. Currently got a batch in with coconut and chocolate chips :-D

I have never had much success with Flapjacks but this recipe was perfect. Lovely and soft. I used the baking parchment which prevents sticking to the tin.

Taste lovely but had difficulty getting out of greased baking tin. Stuck to the bottom and crumbled. What am I doing wrong?
