Flapjacks, Attempt 1

Our first attempt at flapjacks in the new house. We thought we'd try a different recipe after destroying the last one with the special chocolate chip ingredient (think sticky, choclate mess). This new recipe might have been good but was very overcooked. The dark sugar was nice (a treacley taste) but maybe a mix of light and dark sugars would be better.


Makes ~16, ~50 minutes.

265g/9oz oats
165g/6oz dark brown sugar
165g/6oz margarine
1 rounded tbsp golden syrup

Grease a baking tray and preheat the oven to 150C/300F/Gas Mark 2. Place sugar, margarine and syrup in large saucepan and heat gently until the butter melts. Mix well and remove from heat. Stir in the oats until well-covered and tip into baking tin. Gently press and smooth the surface with the back of a spoon. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Cut into squares or slices while it's warm (after ~10 minutes), then leave in the tray to cool. Remove from tin when completely cold and eat within 3-4 days.
