A few of you asked about the photo I posted on instagram of my flapjacks. I think in other cultures they can mean different things! This is the English version. I left this recipe plain but you can add 50g of dried fruit, nuts or chocolate chips – whatever takes your fancy. It’s very quick and easy to make and makes a lovely accompaniment to a cup of tea!
100g brown sugar
2 tbsp honey
Melt the butter in a saucepan and stir in the sugar and honey till everything is blended and syrupy. Remove from heat and add the oats (and dried fruit/nuts etc if you wish) and mix well. Transfer to a greased, shallow baking tin and press down. Bake at 180C/350F for 10-15 min. It should be soft in the middle and golden at the edges. Cut into slices while still in the tin and leave to cool before turning out.
