Homemade Jammy Flapjacks

Flapjacks are one of those things that I absolutely love, but won’t have for years. Then I’ll for some reason have one, and end up eating 900 that week! In my humble opinion,  jammy flapjacks are the best. With chocolate coming a very close second. I also like to tell myself, that they are oats, so incredibly healthy and energy boosting. Despite the fact that there’s also quite a lot of sugar. A bit like having a giant kebab, with a salad on the side and saying “I had a salad for dinner”. Not that I ever do that!

Instructions

  • 250g porridge oats
  • 125g Butter
  • 90g Golden Syrup
  • 90g Dark brown sugar
  • Jam

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees, and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. You can just grease it with butter, but I prefer the greaseproof paper approach.

Weigh the oats into a large mixing bowl and set to one side.

Place the butter, sugar and syrup in a saucepan, over a medium heat, and stir constantly until it’s a nice smooth mixture, with no lumps.

Pour this mixture into the oats.

Mix together well, until all of the oats look wet. It can get quite tough and sticky, so make sure you proper dig down and get all of the oats covered.

Spoon half of the oats into the baking tray, and press down with the back of a metal spoon. If you do it with a wooden spoon it just sticks.

Dollop on some jam, and spread over the oats. A thin layer will do.

Next, spoon on the rest of the oats, spread and condense until the jam is covered.

Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

Remove from the oven, and take out of the baking tray. Leave to cool before cutting.

Brilliant with a cup of tea for an afternoon snack.
