Classic British Flapjack. Oatmeal bar, probably the most popular in the UK, you can find the recipe literally on any packaging of oatmeal or golden syrup. This recipe is cheap, the bar is tasty, crunchy and quick to make. For me it tastes like the best granola bar. It is often baked with the addition of nuts, chocolate, candied fruit; you can add sunflower seeds, pumpkin, anything you like.

The traditional recipe is very simple – we make Flapjack giving the same amount of sugar, butter and oatmeal. The flapjack bar is supposed to be heavenly sweet! In the healthier version, it is worth giving less sugar or completely replacing it with honey. I like the classic sweet version with golden syrup.


  • 100 g unsalted butter (at room temperature) 
  • 100 g mixed dried fruit & nuts (anything you like)
  • 100 g porridge oats 
  • 100 g self-raising flour 
  • 100 g golden syrup

How to make it

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4. 
  2. Line 20cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper and rub with olive oil. 
  3. Add the butter, dried fruit and nuts, oats and flour into food processor and mix until all comes together, then pulse in the syrup until fully combined.
  4. Transfer to the lined tin, flattening to the edges. Bake for around 15 minutes, or until golden.
  5. Remove from the oven, slice into 16 squares ready to cut, and leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes. 
  6. Use the paper to lift out on to a wire rack, and leave to cool completely.
  1. It is a delicious and valuable snack for every occasion – to school, work, trip or breakfast.
  2. This recipe is an inspiration from 5 Ingredients – Quick and Easy Food by Jamie Oliver.
