About our easy flapjacks recipe

With just six ingredients, these flapjacks are so easy to bake and ready in just half an hour. 

These soft and chewy flapjacks will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks.

If you enjoy adding fruit into your flapjacks, you'll enjoy our honey & apricot flapjack recipe, or our raspberry flapjacks. For something a little different, give our flapjack based millionaire's shortbread a try.

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F or gas mark 4). Line a tin with baking paper, the tin should approx measure 28cm x 18cm x 3cm or 11in x 7in x 1.2in

  2. Step 2:

    In a large pan gently heat the butter or margarine, golden syrup and maple sauce. Heat until the butter is all melted, do not boil. (Using a wooden spoon is advised)

  3. Step 3:

    Remove pan from the heat and add in the oats, sugar and salt. Mix very well until all the oats are covered.

  4. Step 4:

    Put the mixture into the prepared tin and smooth evenly into the corners.

  5. Step 5:

    Bake in the oven for approximately 15 minutes, then turn the tin around and bake for a further 5 minutes. Bake until golden brown.

  6. Step 6:

    Remove the tin from the oven and allow to cool for a short while. With a palette knife lightly mark out into 18 pieces before it sets. Cut up when cold.
