450g fine rolled oats 

75g soft brown sugar

300g unsalted butter

150g golden syrup

  • Preheat oven to gas mark 5.
  • Line a brownie tin with baking paper.
  • Mix the oats with sugar.
  • Melt the butter and syrup over a low heat. 
  • Stir in oats and sugar mix.
  • Press the mixture into the tin. 
  • Bake for around 25 minutes.
  • Leave the flapjack in the tin, cut it into nine squares. 
  • Leave in the tin until completely cooled. 

Don't use jumbo oats as they are too big to mesh together and you'll end up with granola...just as I did with my first attempt.
