Sticky with syrup and oozing with oats, these classic chewy flapjacks are just as at home in a packed lunch as they are on a tea party table.
  • 3½ cups (300g) rolled oats
  • 1 cup (200g) unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup (150g) golden caster sugar
  • ¼ cup (50g) dark brown sugar
  • 6 generous tbsp golden syrup
  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees, and grease and line a rectangular baking tray.
  2. Place the butter in a saucepan and melt over a medium heat.
  3. Add the sugar and syrup and mix until everything is combined.
  4. Stir in the oats, ensuring that they are all evenly coated with the butter and sugar mixture, and then press into the baking tray.
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes (you know your oven better than I do) until golden.
  6. Slice the flapjack into 15 pieces whilst still warm, but leave in tin to cool completely before serving.
  7. FEAST (and schedule a gym trip asap!)
