  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan. Grease and line a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper.

  2. Step 2:

    Put the butter, sugar, mincemeat, cinnamon and salt into a saucepan and set over a medium high heat. Stirring, allow everything to melt together and the sugar to dissolve into the mixture.

  3. Step 3:

    Put the oats into a mixing bowl and add the molten ingredients and give it all a good stir to coat the oats completely – they should be totally moistened. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin, press down with the back of a spoon and pop into the oven.

  4. Step 4:

    Bake for 25 minutes for chewy flapjacks, or 30 minutes if you prefer them slightly more well done. Allow to cool completely then cut into 8 bars or 16 bite-sized pieces. These will store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
