Golden, Oat Flapjacks

Hi everyone :)

I recently bought a individual brownie mould tin and it's amazing - just think of a cupcake/muffin tray but square moulds instead of round! Such a great invention. I have been looking for other recipes I can make so I get full use out of it and I thought about these yummy, golden, oat flapjacks!

They are simple and easy to make and don't require lots of ingredients and it's thinks you normally have stored away in your cupboard anyway.

I will mention if you are young then please get an adult to help as this recipe includes hot sugar which is not nice if it comes into contact with your skin.

150g butter
75g light soft brown sugar
3 rounded tbsp golden syrup
250g rolled oats

1. In a pot (over a low heat) melt the butter, sugar and syrup.
2. Once melted remove from the heat and add the oats and stir until the oats are coated in the melted mixture.
3. Spoon the mixture into the moulds and press with something flat - I used the back of a teaspoon.
4. Baking time does vary - if you want a soft crumbly flapjack then put them in for 15 minutes and if you prefer a crunchy (nearing on burnt) flapjack then 20 minutes.
5. Remove from the oven (after your desired time) and leave on a cooling rack to cool.

Are you a fan of flapjacks? They remind me so much of my Gran as she used to make them all the time! Let me know what you think! If you want to check out the original recipe you can find it HERE.
