Emily’s Delicious and Easy Flapjacks

This is Emily’s recipe for flapjacks. Both my kids love cooking, and helping in the kitchen, and I am a firm believer that kids should learn to cook and bake as life skills. These are delicious and don’t last long when she makes them. She is like me and took a couple of recipes and experimented until she found what worked for her. 

Ingredients:

100g of oats

50g of sugar

50g of butter or margarine

50g of plain flour

30ml of golden syrup

  • First, mix 50g of plain flour and 100g of oats into a large mixing bowl
  • Then, melt 50g of sugar, 50g of butter or margarine and 30ml of golden syrup on a hob – make sure you melt it on the lowest heat possible
  • As soon as the sugar, butter and golden syrup is melted, straightaway add the oats covered with flour in.
  • After this, pour the mixture onto a pre – oiled baking tray; smooth it out with a spoon – *TOP TIP* – add oil to the spoon to stop the mixture from sticking to it.
  • Put in a pre – heated oven at 180 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes
  • Once the flapjacks are cooked, take them out of the oven and immediately cut into the size of your choice – then leave to cool.

Finally serve or leave in a container. You can leave the flapjacks for up to 3 days but if you live in a house like mine they won’t last that long. These make my mum very happy when I make them, but I have to tell her she can’t eat them all when I am at school!
