My favourite Flap Jack Recipe
75g Butter - my own now of course - I prefer unsalted in cooking
75g Sugar - I use and demerara or muscovado or any natural sugar - not white
1 teaspoon of syrup - a heaped one, if you know what I mean
150 g of Jumbo oats - I get these from a health food shop - organic if you can or use porridge oats if you like a finer texture.
Melt butter, sugar and syrup in a saucepan (this will appeal to you Mike)
Stir in the oats. Spoon and press into a baking tin - a small one for this amount of ingredients.
Cook on 160c or 150c fan oven for 20 minutes.
The above is the basic recipe but I add whatever takes my fancy or what I have in the cupboard. It was some of my dried apple rings this time. And I poured melted dark chocalate over the top to set!
The first time I made them I forgot to cook them in the oven - so put them in the freezer for 20 minutes for the chocolate to set hard - and they came out perfectly!
A picture of just plain ones - they taste nice and sweet and chewy - but not crunchy like the muesli because of the smaller syrup content. But I love 'em
