My recipe for Flapjacks
Hello all!! So this week I decided to bake something, don`t ask me why, I just felt the sudden urge. I am not famous for baking to be honest. The reason that I am not good at baking is because I hate following recipes, I get so bored. Anyway, my go-to recipe is for either scones or flapjacks (I will not share my secret scones recipe unless someone asks me to!!). Flapjacks are like mountain bars, they are kind of nutty and oaty so they are good energy bars. The recipe is pretty simple, in England I usually use golden syrup instead of honey or maple syrup but in Japan I can’t get it and I’m just too lazy to make it from scratch. So in Japan I use honey, it’s kind of healthy, well that’s what I tell myself.
The recipe is actually pretty simple. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and get ready to bake the flap jacks for 20 minutes. I always keep things simple because I have a million and ten to do every day. Basically all the measurements are simple:
200g Butter, 200g honey, 400g oats, 200g sugar (but I use 100g) and some nuts or dried fruits (I used about 80g).
First, melt the honey, butter and sugar in a pot.
Next, stir in the oats while hot, adding the nuts or dried fruit
Finally, put the mixture into a baking dish and put in the oven for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, let them sit for a while before you cut into them or they will crumble!
Voilà! Now you have some yummy simple flapjacks.
