These flapjacks require no chiselling (hurrah!) unless you over bake them… But they’ll still taste nice if you do! If baked for just long enough, you will have lovely chewy flapjacks which are perfect to take on a picnic! (If you do over bake them, I recommend taking some custard in a flask on your picnic to soften them up – you don’t want broken teeth! )
My favourite flapjacks have glace cherries in them but you can just replace them for something else if you prefer! Maybe chocolate chips, fudge chunks, dried apricots, raisins, grated apple and cinnamon… whatever you fancy! And you could make them plain, just leave the additional ingredients out! Let me know in the comments below what flapjacks you make, and I’ll try a few of them out
So here’s the recipe. I’ve included dairy free alternatives for those catering for allergies or following a vegan diet. As always please check ingredients of the products you use in case they have changed since this post. Gluten free oats can also be used.
The ingredients I used
Melt the sugar, butter or marg and syrup together
3. Stir in the glace cherries or other alternative ingredients and press into your lined tin.
Stir in the lovely cherries or whatever you are adding
Press the mixture into a 7″ lined tin
4. Bake for about 35 minutes until golden around the edges. Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes before scoring into squares or bars. Leave to cool completely (it will take a while)
Cool for 10 mins before cutting into squares and leave in the tin to cool completely
Makes 24 squares
