Emu’s Flapjack

These flapjacks are awesome! They contain quite a lot of butter though so they are a bit fattier than I would normally like but what the hell they taste great and they still have plenty of carbs in. They tend to be a bit harder and dryer than shop bought ones which means they hold there shape and have a bit more bite to them… which is something I like. I also find them pretty easy on the stomach. They do take a bit of effort though but personally I think they are worth it. They don’t need individual wrapping either and can be just dropped into a sandwich bag which makes them a bit easy to prepare to take out with you.

I’m going to attempt to make a Protein Flapjack version of this at some point.

Ingredients: Butter 150g, oats 300g, Demerea sugar 150g, Golden Syrup 3 tbs.

Method:Heat the oven to 190 degrees (gas mark 5). Grease a non-stick baking tray 30x25cm pan. Melt the butter in a saucepan, mix in the oats and sugar. Heat a metal spoon in hot water and measure in the golden syrup. Mix it until the oats are fully covered then spoon into the baking tray. Pack down and level off. Bake for 25-30mins. Score the tray into 20 fingers while still hot (makes it easier to cut later) and cool for 10 mins. Then cut properly and leave to cool further.
