The Very Best Flapjack Recipe Ever!

March 15, 2012 by Chrissie

The best flapjack recipe is one that I have made for years. It makes the most delicious little bit chewy, but little bit crunchy flapjack on this side of the planet.

Flapjack reminds me of my childhood.  Before I switched to the vanilla slice at 14 and after I switched from the plain donut at 8, flapjack was my go to choice in the local bakery! The ongoing beauty of flapjack is that it is deliciously tasty and very cheap to make!

Flapjack is a really basic dessert or snack square, it doesn’t have the best nutritional content but is very delicious. If you want to get a little more healthy, turn the flapjack into a granola style bar with some dried fruit and nuts.

Here is my favourite flapjack recipe, it should serve about 10 people and be ready in 45 minutes including cooking time. You will find most flapjack recipes are very similar:


  • 125g butter
  •  100g brown soft sugar
  •  250g rolled oats
  •  4 tablespoons golden syrup



Preheat the oven to Gas mark 4 or 180 °C.

  • In a saucepan on a low heat, combine the brown sugar, golden syrup and butter.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until butter and sugar have both melted.
  • Stir in the oats until mixed well.
  • Pour into baking tin – 20cm works well.
  • The mixture will be 2 to 3cm thick.

Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven. When the top is that lovely recognisable golden brown, take out, cut into squares and then leave to cool completely before removing the squares from the tin.
