Easiest Flapjack Recipe

Flapjack Recipe BlogNow it’s officially Autumn- the weather would still suggest otherwise!- Porridge has made a come back into my daily routine and you know what that means, OATS, and I would be ridiculous if I had an abundance of oats in the house and didn’t make flapjack, right? RIGHT!

I know I always say how simple my recipes are- I’m not lying, I’m lazy and if it’s any fussier than it need’s to be I will always find a way to make it easier- but this one is super super simple, it takes half an hour from start to finish and only needs the a pan and a baking tin- not even a mixing bowl- the less washing up the better, after all!

  • 100g Butter

  • 4/5 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 250g Porridge Oats (if using Jumbo Oats then blend them a little first or they wont stick!)


  1. Line a deep baking tray with parchment and preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan
  2. Add the butter and golden syrup to a pan on a medium heat, stirring two combine the two, once the butter has melted remove from the heat
  3. Add the sugar and oats, mixing until they are all equally wet
  4. Tip the oat mixture into the prepared baking dish and pop in the over for 15-20 minutes until golden
    • please please pleaaaase don’t be tempted to leave them in for longer, they harden loads as they cool and eating a brick is not much fun!

As I write this post I’m sat munching on a three day old piece from my latest batch- I know, I can’t believe they’re still around after 3 days either, you can tell I’m back in London and not as home- anyway, it is still as good as it was when I made them on Wednesday! Flapjack Recipe Blog Flapjack Recipe Blog

  • Haha, I love your approach to cooking – the less pans to wash, the better! It’s my policy as well. 😀
    I’m gonna try this recipe out because I got bored of cooking just plain porridge. Thanks for sharing it!


    • It takes all the fun away if you have a mountain of dishes to wash once you finish! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
