This has to be my favourite flapjack recipe so I just had to share it with you! For me, there is something comforting and rather nostalgic about a flapjack. My mum used to make them a lot when we were kids as they are a cheap and tasty lunch box treat. A word of warning, though; this delicious strawberry version never lasts very long so you may need to make an extra batch!

Strawberry Flapjack Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp rice malt syrup
  • 75g unsalted butter
  • 200g rolled oats
  • 100g strawberries, roughly chopped

 

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 170°c/gas 4 and line a 20cm round cake tin.
  2. Melt the butter and syrup in a pan over a medium heat.
  3. Place the oats in a large mixing bowl and add the melted butter. Mix well.
  4. Add the strawberries and carefully mix into the oat mixture.
  5. Transfer to your lined tin and press down firmly.
  6. Bake for approximately 20 minutes, until the sides are starting to brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes before cutting into 8-10 slices whilst still warm.
  8. Leave to cool completely before removing from tin otherwise the flapjack will collapse. This is the hard bit!

I use rice malt syrup as it’s fructose-free but you can use any kind you wish. And can we just take a moment to admire Madeleine’s personalised baking gear?! I’m very jealous of her ‘baked with love’ bowl from Find Me a Gift and she is obsessed with her ‘baking star’ utensils from Born Gifted! How cute is that little chopping board?! Sadly, I am under strict instructions that nobody is to use them but her. They come with the bucket to store them in plus a recipe so it’s a really sweet little gift for the mini bakers in your life.
