Flaps a la Jack

Hot on the heels of the huge success of the Beef recipe (it doesn't take much to encourage me), I whipped out the camera today to snap one of our favourite sugary treats; flapjacks. I featured these in the early days of this blog.  

So, without further ado, here's the how to; 


You need:

140g butter

140g brown sugar of some type

280g oats, I like Bunalun but Flahavans are equally fab

3-4 tblsp honey or golden syrup

Gently heat the butter, sugar and honey to a simmer. Don't rush it or it won't like you

When the mixture is nice and hot, throw in your oats and give them a good stir so everything is nice and sticky


Protection is always a good idea, so line a nice, big 10inch tin (or similarly sized receptacle) with some baking paper   


Empty all your oats and sticky stuff into the tin and bake it at 180degrees C for 20 minutes or so

Before this is fully cold, carefully run a knife around the inside of the tin and pop out the hot flapjack slab. With a large knife, press down gently but firmly to cut into segments. Eat up before the pesky kids get them.

  1. Thanks for posting this recipe – I successfully made a batch of these yesterday, my first ever flapjacks! They were so good that I’m making another batch today to bring in to work tomorrow 🙂

  2. I have been using similar recipe for years. I love to add sunflower seeds – they give a delicous bite and sometimes (for the kids – of course) I add some chocolate chips – yum!!
