Oat Flapjacks

These basic flapjacks are made to satisfy a sweet tooth or provide energy when out on a cycle (see my other site Zozibike for gpx cycle routes ?). It’s simply porridge oats, a few raisins, some soft brown sugar, plant based butter and golden syrup mixed together with a hint of ginger and baked into sticky bars.

Great with a coffee.

Put the oven on to pre-heat.

Line a baking tray with non stick baking paper, leave a long flaps of the paper all around the tin (all will be explained later).

Put the non dairy butter, sugar and golden syrup in a pan and heat gently to melt, don’t let it bubble.

Place the oats, raisins and the ground ginger into a large mixing bowel, stir them and make a well. Pour the melted sugars and butter into the well of oats and stir until everything is completely coated in the melted sugars.

Once the mixture is throughly mixed, pour it into the lined baking tray, and use a spoon to pat down into the tray. Using the flaps of baking paper to use your hands to help flatten the mixture down into all the corners and to level it before baking.

Place the mixture in the tray into the oven (180C) for 25 mins

After 25 mins take the tray out of the oven and keeping the baked mixture in the tray and while hot cut into flapjack size pieces.

Now leave the tray to cool (it will firm up while it cools). Once its cooled remove from the tray and cut again and put in a tin ready to scoff.
