How to make Perfect Flapjacks

Baking for friends or a family tea time is something I really enjoy. There’s something satisfying about baking something which is gobbled up by happy faces in no time! Flapjacks are always a crowd pleaser in our home.

I recently added this Flapjack Tutorial to my YouTube channel, it’s been really popular. Flapjacks are one of those things we all love to bake and of course, eat!

Below you can watch the video and also read the recipe. It’s really simple but has a few extra ingredients which give them that tasty, chewy deliciousness that I think, a flapjack needs.


6oz/150g Dark brown sugar

8oz/200g Butter

2tbsp Golden syrup

5oz/125g Self-raising flour

5oz/125g Oats 4oz/100g

40z/100g Desiccated Coconut

1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of soda

6oz/150g Any dried fruit or nuts of your choice

2oz/50g each of dark and white chocolate


Preheat your oven to 170c.

1. Melt sugar, butter and golden syrup in a pan over a low heat until all sugar and butter are dissolved. Do not boil.

2. Stir through through all dry ingredients well.

3.Pour into a large, lined Baking tray and flatten with the back of a spatula.

4.Bake for 10-12 minutes till golden, they should be golden all over but still have a slight wobble in the middle.

5. Leave to cool thoroughly before swirling white and dark melted chocolate all over. Let set and enjoy.

    Look delicious and more importantly quite easy to make for someone who doesn’t usually have much success with cakes. Am definitely going to try this recipe. Thank you!

    This is definitely the best flapjack recipe ever! So much better than my old over-sweet syrup/butter/oats recipe. And when you finish them off with the drizzled and feathered chocolate, they look so professional! Thanks, Lizzie!
