Flapjack Friday: Searching For The Perfect Flapjack?

flapjack

I have been searching for the perfect flapjacks recipe for the last few weeks. All of mine either ended up more like a crunchy granola bar or a soggy mess!….Well I’ve found the perfect recipe today that worked a treat!

I found this recipe on http://www.naturallygoodfood.co.uk/ and the only adjustment i made was adding an extra tbsp of syrup which i won’t do next time, but my oh my….perfect consistency!

Here is the recipe converted to grams:

140g Oats (I used jumbo oats, but you can use porridge if you prefer that)

55g Self-Rasing Flour (I only had plain so i used that and added baking powder)

110g Unsalted Butter

110g Sugar

1Tbsp Golden Syrup

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180c. Melt the margarine, sugar and golden syrup together. Meanwhile, mix the dry ingredients. Add the melted ingredients and combine. Turn out onto a greased baking tray and bake for 10-20 minutes. Mark out the slices immediately after cooking, and when they have cooled a little, lever them out of the tray and onto a cooling rack.

Oats are full of iron, zinc and vitamin B. They’re a great slow-releasing source of energy, so while you can’t exactly argue that a flapjack is a health food, it’s a great deal better as an energy-boosting snack than a lot of commercially produced cakes and bars.

This recipe can be added to and tinkered with, of course. I made a second batch with coconut and cherries which were yumtastic!  Just don’t, ever, forget the flour!
