Comforting Soft and Chewy Flapjacks Recipe

soft flapjacks

Since spending more time at home, I've been on a baking craze. This is my favourite basic flapjack recipe for making soft yet chewy golden flapjacks. These are truly the melt in your mouth kind! Not guilt free, but a lovely sweet treat to share with loved ones over a cup of tea.


250g porridge oats
185g baking margarine
100g light brown sugar
100g golden syrup

Equipment you'll need

1x 20x30cm baking tray
1x medium saucepan
A wooden spoon
Baking paper
Weighing scales

Prep time: 10 mins
Baking time: 20 mins
Oven setting: 160 degrees or gas mark 3


Firstly, line your tin with baking paper. I cut diagonal slits in each corner of the baking paper (about the same depth as the tin) so that it can be easily folded to fit the shape of the tin. Before you start preparing, be sure to set your oven to 160 degrees. 

In a large saucepan, melt the 185g baking margarine, 100g light brown sugar, and 100g of golden syrup. Heat gently, stirring occasionally until melted. Once melted, take the saucepan off the heat and fold in your 250g porridge oats. Once fully bound together, pour out the mixture evenly into your tin and spread evenly with the back of your wooden spoon or spatula.

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. When ready, take them out of the oven and allow the flapjacks to cool before cutting into squares.
