  • 115g caster sugar

  • 85g golden syrup

  • 1 orange zested (unwaxed if possible)

  • 230g oats

  • 115g butter


  1. Melt the butter, sugar, syrup and orange zest in a pan over a low heat until the butter has melted, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in the oats.
  3. Turn out into a tray (I use an 8 x 8 inch tray for this quantity) and press the mixture down flat.
  4. Cook for 15-20 minutes at 180C/Gas Mark 4, until the edges are browned.
  5. Leave to cool then cut into slices.

Handy Hint

I use my Parmesan grater to grate the zest finely.

    Orange zest is good for you apparently. As with all flapjack, don't let it overcook or it will be too hard - just brown around the edges is fine. I use a silicone tray for this so the the flapjacks just slide out.
