My basic flapjack recipe is simple and easy to make. its perfect for an afternoon treat but it’s also great for a cake sale or a gift to a friend.


Its been a few weeks since I’ve posted a recipe due to a swollen foot meaning I cant stand for very long and my CFS increasing both leading me to not bake very much! but I’m back with a recipe that’s quick and easy to make!

Flapjacks were another bake that to start with I just couldn’t get right. They were too hard, too oily etc. I tried many different recipes until I came across this one that makes the softest chewiest flapjack that is just perfect. The combination of the golden syrup and sugar give this a really sweet sugar kick that’s the perfect pick-me-up! Try it and see if it works for you.



Makes 12

Oven – 140c


  • 250g butter
  • 250g light brown sugar
  • 150g golden syrup
  • 500g rolled oats



  1. Melt butter, sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan, stirring until completely melted and starting to bubble.
  2. Stir in rolled oats and mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour into lined deep tin. Smooth the top down.
  4. Cook for 20 mins or until slightly brown.
  5. Leave to cool for 10 mins then cut into portions.
  6. Leave to cool completely before removing from tin.


  • It should still be soft in the middle when you remove it from the oven – it will harden a bit as it cools
  • You don’t want to leave the flapjack at longer than 10 minutes before you cut it into portions otherwise it might get too hard.
  • This is just a basic recipe but there are many variations you can make with flapjack – add fruit and nuts for a fruity flapjack or chocolate chips for a chocolate flapjack. I’ll add some more variations of flapjack as I make them but try experimenting yourself!
