White Chocolate and Apple Spiced Flapjacks

Happy 1st December everyone. I love Christmas and everything about it so I’m delighted to share with you my Christmas recipes over the coming weeks.

I’ve got a few variations of flapjack on my blog but this one is perfect for this time of year. The addition of mixed spice combined with the apples sends a scent of Christmas throughout the house. I love mince pies but I know not everyone is a fan of them. These spiced apple flapjacks are the perfect simple alternative to offer. The countdown is on….

Makes approximately 12


250g oats

125g butter

125 caster sugar

3 tablespoons golden syrup

1 Bramley apple, peeled and diced small

1 teaspoon mixed spice

50g white choc chips (and a tablespoon or 2 to drizzle over)


Pre heat oven to 200c / 180C fan

Grease and line a tin approx 20 x 20cm

Gently heat your butter in a saucepan and stir in the sugar, syrup, mixed spice and diced apple.

Gradually add the oats and make sure you coat them fully in the butter mixture. You don’t want a dry oat in sight!

Now add in your choc chips, stir to combine.

Transfer to your baking tin and bake in the centre of the oven for 15 minutes.

As they come out of the oven quickly score into even squares and then score each square in half so you have triangle shaped flapjacks.

Allow to cool, transfer to a plate and drizzle over some more white chocolate.
