You only need a few simple ingredients to make these easy chocolate flapjacks. Jumbo oats add a good chunky texture while melted chocolate makes them sticky and delicious.
This winning recipe in our School Flapjack competition was created by Tessa at Audlem Primary School.
250g Whole Jumbo Oats
100g organic oats
3 tbsp golden syrup
50g dark chocolate
50g milk chocolate
60g dark or white chocolate, melted to drizzle on top
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C and line a 21cm square tin with baking paper.
Add the butter, golden syrup and sugar to a saucepan and gently heat until they have melted together and the sugar dissolved.
Melt the dark and milk chocolate in a glass bowl above a saucepan of gently boiling water (don’t let the water reach the bowl). Then pour the chocolate into the melted butter mix and stir.
Add the oats to the saucepan with the melted chocolate, butter, sugar and golden syrup and mix until thoroughly combined.
Pour the chocolate oat mixture into the prepared tin, making sure it is pressed into the corners and smoothed across the top. Place in the oven on the middle shelf and bake for 20 minutes.
Remove the flapjack from the oven, place on a wire rack and leave to cool.
When completely cool, slice into 16 squares and drizzle with more melted chocolate.
Store in an airtight container and eat within 5 days.
