Flapjack recipe

Here is the recipe for the beautiful flapjacks my friend made on Sunday. This recipe is definitely a keeper and will be perfect for taking on country walks, with cups of tea on rainy days, anytime...

Fabulous flapjacks

160g butter
160g brown sugar
120g golden syrup
1/2 tsp salt
260g porridge oats
70g chopped dried apricots
50g dried cranberries
50g pumpkin seeds
4 tbsp pumpkin seeds


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and line and grease a 20cm tin.
In a saucepan melt together the butter, sugar, syrup and salt.
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl and stir in the butter and syrup mixture.
Spoon the mixture into the tin and press down with a potato masher to level the surface.
Bake for 18-20 minutes.
Store in the fridge and cut into bars to serve.

Honestly, these are so yummy. If you have the ingredients in your cupboard, make them now! Honestly. The cranberries and seeds just elevate it from being a normal flapjack to an Olympic Gold Medal Flapjack :)


  1. They sound lovely!

    By the way, get your butt onto Twitter, I've had two people ask me since your guest post if you were on there.

    1. I have no idea how to use twitter Mrs M, I may have to ask you to teach me..

  2. Those sound yummy! Only problem is that I'm the only person in my house that likes flapjacks and I'd just eat them all!

  3. Yes I'm the same Brownie Queen. i have to give my cakes away to stop me from scoffing the lot :)
