Oaty golden deliciousness!

This was a lunchbox favourite in my house! Flapjacks are great because they’re easy peasy and inexpensive, and they’re really filling. So if you’re broke, they are a great thing to have as a snack! Also great to make with kids as they’re pretty minimal and very simple.

You will need:

  • 125g margarine or butter
  • 125g brown sugar
  • 100g golden syrup
  • 250g rolled oats
  1. Preheat your oven to 180°c.
  2. Put all your ingredients in a large bowl and pop into the microwave. Cook for 2 minutes, or until the butter has melted, take out and stir.
  3. Put back in the microwave for another couple of minutes until the sugar melts slightly – about 2 minutes.
  4. Mix well.
  5. Butter a 13″ x 9″ dish and pour the flapjack mix into it. Press flat with the back of a spoon and smooth out.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until the edges look cooked. Take out of the oven and cool on a cooling rack.
  7. Once cold, cut into squares or fingers and store in an airtight container.
Sneaky tip – why not add a handful of chopped apricots or raisins to the mix? Simply stir in before you transfer the oaty mix to the pan.


A little bit of dessicated coconut makes flapjacks super-duper amazing too!


Any suggestions for thos of us who don't have microwaves? Is it ok to use an oven? x
