Bakes, Small Treats

Raisin and Cherry Flapjack

This week I’ll be sharing with you an easy and yummy flapjack recipe! This flapjack is great for an on-the-go snack or back to school treat. The best thing about flapjack is you can add all different kinds of dried fruit, so really get creative with it!

What you’ll need:

  • 300g oats
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 100g dark brown sugar
  • 150g butter/margarine
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 150g dried fruit – I used both raisins and cherries so did half and half of each

Let’s get started!

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180°C.
  2. Prepare a 20cm x 20cm square tin with greaseproof paper and set aside.
  3. If you’re using cherries like me, cut them up into quarters.
  4. In a saucepan, melt together the butter, golden syrup and brown sugar over a medium heat.
  5. Remove the mixture from the heat and add in your oats, stirring until fully combined.
  6. Now add your fruit in to the mix and stir once again until its evenly distributed.
  7. Pour the mixture into your prepared square tin and bake the flapjack in the oven for around 25-30 minutes, or until golden.
  8. Once the flapjack is baked, take it out of the oven. Leave the flapjack in the tin and place on a cooling rack to cool down slightly.
  9. Once cool, lift the flapjack out of the tin using the greaseproof paper and cut into squares or slices.
