How to make it
- Preheat the oven to 180C. Line the base of a shallow square/rectangular tin (23cm/9in) with a sheet of baking paper if the tin is not non-stick.(Use a 20cm/8in tin for a thicker, chewier flapjack). Put the butter syrup and sugar in a medium pan. Stir over a low heat until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and stir in the oats.
- Press the mixture into the tin. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown on top (follow the longer cooking time for a crispier flapjack). Allow to cool in the tin for 5 minutes then mark into bars or squares with the back of a knife while still warm. Cool in the tin completely before cutting and removing - this prevents the flapjack from breaking up.
