Recipe: Super Easy Gooey Flapjacks

Blogtober Day 12 

If you follow me on Instagram then you may have noticed that lately, I’ve been getting my bake on. Now that we have our own home I seem to have found a love for baking and cooking. This is something I definitely never expected. Moving forward, I’m going to try and do regular recipe/how to posts on here to share some of my bakes/dishes…enjoy!

I thought I’d start with possibly the easiest recipe in the world…no, really, it is so easy. I’ve never been a huge fan of flapjacks however when Liam told me how much he liked them I thought I’d give it a go. Not only have I realised that I actually do love flapjacks but I’ve also realised they are so easy to bake. Flapjacks also last 4-5 days when kept in an airtight container so I’ve been baking a batch on a Sunday to last the week. Now, onto the how-to:

Ingredients (makes nine flapjacks):

  • 250g Porridge Oats
  • 125g Butter (you can also use reduced fat spread which is what I use to make it slightly healthier)
  • 125g Brown Sugar
  • 4 tbsps Golden Syrup (I like my flapjacks slightly gooey however if this isn’t for you, go for 2-3 tbsps)
  • 100g chocolate chips (you can swap these for raisins or go for plain flapjacks without either)


When I said that this recipe was easy, I wasn’t kidding!

  1. Preheat the oven to 180c and lightly grease an ovenproof dish
  2. Melt the butter in the microwave
  3. Stir the brown sugar into the melted butter and then add the porridge oats and chocolate chips
  4. Slowly stir in the syrup until it is fully mixed in
  5. Pat the mix into the ovenproof dish and score nine pieces with a knife
  6. Bake for 20 minutes until the oats are golden brown
  7. Tah-Dah! Enjoy warm with ice cream or leave to cool and enjoy over the next few days
