  • 115g brown sugar (I use a mix of dark and light)

  • 3 tbsp golden syrup

  • 310g rolled oats

  • 170g butter

  • 1 splash maple syrup (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 180C/170C for fan oven.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan on a low heat, until completely melted.
  3. Add sugar and syrup.
  4. Turn up the heat and stir thoroughly until bubbles emerge, (by boiling for a few minutes, a toffee taste is created).
  5. Turn off the heat and add the oats.
  6. Place into a tin and cook for 15-20 mins.
  7. Allow to cool in tin and place on a wire rack.

    I am a rubbish baker/cook and even I can impress my family with this easy, delicious recipe!

    I use this recipe a lot as a base for flapjacks, I make them straight after making the Marshmallow Crunch (also on Mumsnet recipes) as mixing the butter/sugar/syrup and oats gets all the left over marshmallow off the saucepan easily. I either use muesli with already added dried fruit/nuts and seeds or I use plain oats and add the extras after. If I'm doing these for an event I add dried fruits and mixed nuts and seeds and then I drizzle melted chocolate over once they're cooked and cooled.

    These flapjacks are good crowd pleasers. Lovely addition for picnics and afternoon tea. Add ice cream and fruit for a children pleasing desert.
