Friday Fave: Flapjacks

I love, love, love oats!! Not only are they delicious, but they are provide a slow-release of energy, which keeps you feeling fuller for longer, plus they are a heart healthy food! They are delicious in all forms- from porridge, to oat topping on a fruit crumble, and especially flapjacks!!! 

Homemade flapjacks are always nicer but can sometimes be dry, or else overly buttery. To combat this I added some special ingredients...

Without a doubt this is the best thing I have ever baked! These are beyond delicious!
I adapted the recipe found here. This literally took five minutes from stove top to oven, so they are a quick treat to whip up!

For perfect flapjacks you will need...

  • 8oz rolled oats
  • 4oz margarine
  • 4oz brown sugar
  • 3tbsp golden syrup
  • Half packet glace cherries, chopped
  • Handful miniature chocolate chips
  1. Line a 9x9 tin with greaseproof paper. Preheat the oven to 180degrees Celsius.
  2. Melt margarine, sugar and syrup over a medium heat.
  3. Empty pan into a mixing bowl. Quickly add oats, cherries and chocolate chips.
  4. Mix until binded. Work quickly or the chips will melt.
  5. Pour into baking tin and flatten using spatula or back of spoon. Ideally it should be between 1/2-3/4 inch thick. 
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until brown. Don't overbake or they will be too dry!

After all of this hard work comes....
