Crispy on the top and a perfect chewy texture on the bottom.

175g butter
175g light brown sugar
175g golden syrup
- Merlot these all and stir
Add 350g of oats, 100g dedicated coconut and 75g sultanas

Put in a 30 x 20 cm tray and bake for 40mins at 150 degrees. Cut into 12 pieces when cooled. Die happy.

Is it ok without sultanas?

Thank you JudgeRindersMinder. It’s a liquid so I’d usually measure it in a jug.

SuzieQ10 Sun 18-Aug-19 14:08:33

It's haven't any golden syrup. But want to make these. Would it work with runny hunny?

CakeIsMyFavouriteAndBest Sun 18-Aug-19 14:08:56

Is that a fan oven or normal as I wouldn't want to burn or overcook them. Love flapjacks but am useless at cooking them so want to try these!

With the Merlot and the Dedicated Coconut this has moved from recipe to Poetry. Pure Poetry.

SuzieQ10 Sun 18-Aug-19 14:09:31

Or perhaps the honey would not be quite sticky enough to hold it together. Perhaps I'll save it for another day after a trip to Sainsbury's.

I'm so pleased to see dedicated coconut is coming back into fashion grin

Thequaffle Sun 18-Aug-19 14:10:21

@SuzieQ10 I’m not sure, I’ve never done it. I personally feel golden syrup is integral to a flapjack recipe. It would probably make it healthier!

Thequaffle Sun 18-Aug-19 14:11:37

@CakeIsMyFavouriteAndBest I had it on 150 fan. Keep peeking at the top so it doesn’t get too brown. And press the mixture down in the tin before it goes in so it’s nicely compacted.

JudgeRindersMinder Sun 18-Aug-19 14:12:17

@Thequaffle stop with your fruity goodness! Let’s go for honeycomb 😂

Thequaffle Sun 18-Aug-19 14:12:22

@howwudufeel yep you can leave them out completely if you like.

Freefrops Sun 18-Aug-19 14:12:57

Is that a fan with 150 feathers? Or an electric one with those bits of paper waving out of it?

FiveLittlePigs Sun 18-Aug-19 14:14:26

I'm trying to find a loophole to justify these being a part of the Mediterranean diet that I'm on but failing miserably. sad

Apart from the Merlot, I can have an occasional glass of that! grin

Thequaffle Sun 18-Aug-19 14:14:39

@JudgeRindersMinder haha, yes, I think a smashed up crunchie bar might just be what’s needed to elevate these!

DontCallMeShitley Sun 18-Aug-19 14:15:05

I use a recipe with condensed milk and golden syrup but nothing dedicated and no Merlot or dried grapes.

which1 Sun 18-Aug-19 14:18:09

Glace cherries go well with this.

VivaLeBeaver Sun 18-Aug-19 14:19:22

I do a similar recipe. No sultanas and no merlot but add melted chocolate instead, about 150g worth.

Thequaffle Sun 18-Aug-19 14:21:08

@which1 yes they would! I wanted glacé cherries but they didn’t have any in my Sainsbury’s local so went with the controversial sultana instead.

Mamalicious16 Sun 18-Aug-19 14:22:23

I make this but no coconut or sultanas.
Mine doesn't make it into the oven.......mmmmm

MrsLinManuelMiranda Sun 18-Aug-19 14:24:37

Sultanas- No, no, no and no!

ChicCroissant Sun 18-Aug-19 14:28:21

Golden syrup sets after baking, so the biscuit/flapjack/whatever will be very soft when it comes out of the oven but will crisp up/set later. Not sure honey would have the same effect but nothing wrong with a crumbly flapjack if you have a spoon handy. Give it a go and let us know, if it is too crumbly then you'll have to cook a second batch with syrup just to check the difference.

JinglingHellsBells Sun 18-Aug-19 14:29:26

@thequaffle what is the AIBU? Maybe post in food instead hmm

You can add whatever you like to flapjack mixture within reason.

JinglingHellsBells Sun 18-Aug-19 14:30:51

Honey will not work- different setting temp etc and it's no healthier- both are sugar.

PasDeGeeGees Sun 18-Aug-19 14:32:25

I like a flapjack - cheers OP.

^ a nice Merlot perhaps?

ToEarlyForDecorations Sun 18-Aug-19 14:37:53

sounds delish. Nom, nom, nom

(were those remarks irritating enough ?)
