Choc Chip Flapjacks

Perfect for afternoon tea, perfect for lunch boxes, perfect for a post work out treat. Basically perfect for anything, you get the gist. These can be made in a flash and devoured even quicker. If you end up having lots of Easter eggs to use up these are perfect. These are so popular I’d make two batches if I were you.

Makes approx 12


250g oats

125g butter

125g caster sugar

3 tablespoons golden syrup

80g dark chocolate – in cubes or chips

Drizzle of dark chocolate to decorate


Pre heat oven to 180c fan

Weigh out all your ingredients into separate bowls.

Gently heat your butter in a saucepan along with the syrup.

Add the oats bit by bit making sure they get fully coated in the syrup mixture. Allow to cool a little.

Now add your dark chocolate chips.

Grease and line your baking tin and spoon the mixture in. I use an 18x18cm shallowish tin. Don’t worry if the mix doesn’t spread to the sides. I pour my mixture in and leave about 2 inches up the side of the tin otherwise it will be too flat if the mixture goes all the way to the edges.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 15 minutes. Once out of the oven quickly score into 12 and allow to set.

Lift out carefully with a palette knife. Allow to fully cool, then drizzle over some dark chocolate.

Put the kettle on and reward yourself with one.
