Sticky Flapjacks

I thought I’d give you guys a deliciously easy recipe this week. It’s a cheap and quick bake (the whole thing took me only 30 minutes) – perfect if you’re a student or short on time!


The following recipe would make enough to fill a 20x20cm tin, which I then cut into roughly 16 squares.


4oz margarine, plus extra for greasing tin.

4oz brown sugar

3tbps golden syrup

8oz oats

Optional: mixed nuts, seeds, dried fruit


Preheat the oven to 180̊C/350̊F/Gas Mark 4.

Grease the tin.

Heat the margarine, brown sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan over a medium heat, stirring until they form a smooth mixture.

Remove from the heat and add the oats stirring thoroughly. If you’re adding nuts, seeds of dried fruit, stir them in now.

Spread the mixture into the tin evenly and bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.

Once done, allow to cool in the tin before cutting into squares.
