Chocolate Chip Flapjacks

I fancied making something different today… something that would go nice with a cup of tea.   I had a rummage through the cupboards to see what ingredients I had then flicked through a few cookbooks… decided to make Flapjacks! 🙂

Ingredients :

  • 115g / 4oz butter, plus extra for greasing (I used Stork)
  • 60g / 2 1/4 oz Caster Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of Golden syrup
  • 350g / 12oz rolled oats (I used Porridge Oats)
  • 85g / 3oz plain chocolate chips (I used a bar of plain chocolate chopped up)
  • 85g / 3oz sultanas (I left out the sultanas my lot wont eat them so doubled up on the chocolate)

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C / 350 Degrees F / Gas Mark 4.   Lightly grease a shallow 20cm / 8inch square cake tin.
  2. Place the butter, caster sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan and cook over a low heat, stirring constantly until the butter and sugar melt and the mixture is well combined.
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the rolled oats until they are well coated.   Add the chocolate chips and the sultanas and mix well to combine everything.
  4. Turn into the prepared tin and press down well.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.   Cool slightly, then mark into fingers.   When almost cold, cut into bars or squares and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
