Classic British Flapjacks

Classical British Flapjacks

Classic British Flapjacks. A flapjack is an oat bar popular in the UK. They’re typically made with butter, oats, and Golden Syrup.

Although they’re often made at home, they are commonly found in bakeries, ready-made in grocery stores and shops.

They’re perfect for bake sales and after-school snacks.

 

 

ADDITIONAL RECIPE NOTES

In the US, I recommend using quick cook oats. If old fashion is all you have, cut the measurement down to 2 cups, and increase the golden syrup to 6 tablespoons.

Melt the butter and sugar together over low heat. Higher heat can end up hard and taffy-like.

Overcooking may result in a hard, crunchy flapjack. Remove from the oven when the edges are golden. 

For a crisper flapjack, use a shallower baking pan and bake at a higher temperature.

Use dark corn syrup in place of golden syrup.

To avoid a greasy flapjack, mix the butter and sugar mixture well until you see no sign of melted butter.
