Easy Flapjacks


  • 70 g golden syrup
  • 210 g butter
  • 125 g caster sugar
  • 310 g rolled oats


  • Heat the oven to 170°C/gas mark 3½.
  • Grease a baking tray (approximately 26cm x 16cm) with butter.
  • Put the butter, syrup and sugar in a saucepan and heat gently; stirring to melt and combine the ingredients.
  • Add the rolled oats and mix together well.
  • Empty the mixture into the tray and flatten out with the back of a spoon.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. (It will still be soft to the touch; they firm up as they cool down.) Err on the side of under-cooked if you aren't sure otherwise they go crunchy!
  • Let the flapjacks cool for 5 minutes and then mark into pieces (I made 12 but mine are quite large!).
  • Leave to cool in the tray.
