#AtoZChallenge U – Ultimate Flapjacks

Although not gluten free, these Ultimate Flapjacks are wheat free. And although full of sugar and syrup, they are a delicious treat. They are so easy to make, and the kids can easily get involved with the measuring and preparation.



250g oats

100g raisins

125g butter

60g demerara sugar

4 tbsp. golden syrup

pinch of salt

(you can add other dried fruit, chopped nuts, seeds etc)


  1. Melt the butter, sugar and syrup in a pan on a low heat setting.
  2. When melted and the sugar dissolved, turn off the heat. Add the oats, raisins and salt and mix well.
  3. Pour the mixture into loaf tins or a high-sided baking tray and press down.
  4. Cook in the over 180c for about 20mins until brown and crispy.
  5. Cut into squares, allow to cool and enjoy.

    • Thank you.
      Your new recipe sounds interesting. I’ve only ever made banana bread, so I’d be interested to see how the banana flapjacks turn out. Also I once added choc chips to my flapjacks. They melted in the hot butter of course (I hadn’t thought of that), but still tasted lovely! Maybe I could have added coco powder instead.
