• 375g unsalted butter or baking margarine
  • 225g golden syrup
  • 200g soft brown sugar
  • 500g porridge oats


  • STEP 1
    Set oven to gas mark 3, 160 C.
  • STEP 2
    Grease a 20x30cm baking tray and line the bottom with baking parchment.
  • STEP 3
    In a large saucepan melt butter, sugar and syrup until all mixed and runny.
  • STEP 4
    Take the saucepan off the heat and stir in the oats until all combined.
  • STEP 5
    Pour the mixture into the prepared baking tray and smooth even with a spatula.
  • STEP 6
    Place in the centre of the pre-heated oven and bake for 20 - 25 minutes, until golden. (If you prefer a more chewy flapjack, it should still have a slight wobble when you take it out of the oven).
  • STEP 7
    Allow to cool in the tin for 15 minutes, then mark lightly where you want to cut into squares. Cover with a clean tea towel until completely cooled.
  • STEP 8
    Cut into squares and turn out.
