Sticky, sweet yet crunchy. The perfect flapjack. Something to indulge in on a cold winters afternoon.

I like adding chocolate chips, cherries or dried fruit and seed mix to this recipe to make the flapjack extra special but this recipe is for the base.

I am sure you will be able to experiment and add your own treats to make it more personal and special.


175g margarine

175g demerara sugar

2 tbsps. golden syrup

225g porridge oats



  1. Melt the margarine, sugar and syrup gently in a pan.
  2. Once they have melted stir in the oats.
  3. Tip the mixture into a lined baking tin, I use a 7.5 inch by 8.5 inch but it really depends how thick you want your pieces of flapjack.
  4. Press down gently with the back of a spoon.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes at 180C.
  6. Leave to cool for 10 minutes then cut into pieces, it will make 12 or 16, depending on the size you prefer.

Enjoy 🙂
