Here’s a really simple and delicious flapjack recipe that I turn to regularly. I often add different flavours to the mix for a bit of variety – lemon or orange zest, a teaspoon of cinnamon or dried fruit all work brilliantly.
150g soft brown sugar
165g unsalted butter
1 tbsp golden syrup
Line an 8 x 10” baking tray with greaseproof paper and pre-heat the oven to fan 180C. Tip the porridge oats into a bowl. Melt the sugar, butter and golden syrup over a low heat until combined, then tip into the oats and mix well. Press the mixture into the tin and bake for 15 minutes until golden on top. The flapjacks will be very soft at first but don’t worry – they firm up as they cool down.
