Flapjack is a perfect mid morning snack so it’s ideal for working from home during covid-19. I made up a batch of these gooey flapjacks last weekend and I just can’t stop eating them! I like to add extras to mine, usually whatever I’ve got in my cupboards. I added desiccated coconut and a seed mix to this batch but chopped nuts and dried fruit also works well. For the seed mix, use your favourite seeds or whatever you can get hold of but I tend to use a bag of the four seed mix which you can buy from Tesco.
These are so easy to make; you start by warming your butter, sugar and golden syrup together over a medium heat so it melts into a thick sauce. Use a large pan for this and then add all your dry ingredients straight into the pan. Mix it all up and pop it in a dish for baking in the oven.
I know it’s difficult to resist warm flapjack, straight from the oven but it’s important to let the flapjack cool completely before slicing it up; if you cut it while it’s still warm it’ll crumble and fall apart at the edges.
