Baking for Kids- Really Gooey Flapjack

These flapjacks are really quick to make and taste AMAZING. They are delicious warm but I think they taste even better the next day, especially after a day of school!


250g Porridge Oats

125g unsalted butter

125g soft brown sugar

3 tablespoons of golden syrup


Heat the oven to 180C

Line a baking tray (about 20cm square) with greaseproof paper and then grease with extra butter to stop it sticking

Heat the butter in a saucepan being very careful of the heat and when it is melted stir in the sugar.

Stir for a minute before adding the porridge oats and mix them in until they are coated with the butter and sugar

Add the golden syrup and mix in until it is spread across all the oats

Carefully take the mixture off the heat and then spread out and press down hard into the pan.

Get an adult to help you with the oven and cook for around 15 minutes until the flapjack is lightly browned.

Leave to cool for 5 minutes in the pan before taking out and letting it cool on a cooling rack for a while.

You can then cut it into squares- it should make 12- 15 but I bet you won’t be able to resist just having one piece!
