I am SO far behind with recipes at the moment! I’ve got about a dozen lined up as drafts waiting for me to decipher my notes and type up or finish adding photos, but things have been so hectic the last few weeks that I just haven’t had time to catch up.
So for now, here’s a quick recipe for some soft, chewy flapjacks. I forgot to take a photo of them straight after baking, and then before I knew it, they’d all gone! So sorry there’s not a photo for this one, but you all know what flapjacks look like, right? ;)
325g rolled oats
175g Demerara sugar
175g unsalted butter
2 tbsp golden syrup
1 large banana, mashed
100g peanut butter, smooth or crunchy
Pre-heat your oven to 180c and line a deep-sided baking tray with greaseproof paper.
In a large mixing bowl combine the oats and sugar and put to one side.
In a saucepan over a low heat, melt the butter and golden syrup together until smooth. Pour the melted butter mixture into the bowl of oats and sugar and mix well.
Add the mashed banana and peanut butter and give it a good mix, making sure all the dry ingredients are coated in the melted butter.
Tip the contents of the bowl into your prepared tray and bake for15-17 minutes until a firm layer forms on top, but is still soft underneath. Leave to cool in the tray for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Cut into squares and enjoy! You could even pour a layer of melted chocolate on top and leave to set before cutting into squares!
