Ingredients

  • 200 g porridge/rolled oats
  • 50 g jumbo oats see notes
  • 125 g unsalted butter or baking spread
  • 100 g brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp golden syrup see notes
  • 50 g dried cranberries
  • 50 g white chocolate chips
  • 20 g almond flakes

Square tin 23x23cm (9x9inch) or similar lined with baking paper that overhangs on two sides. It will make for easy removal of flapjacks/granola bars from the tin.

    Instructions

    • Preheat the oven to 160C/320F/Gas Mark 3.
    • Put sugar, baking spread or butter and golden syrup in a large pan over low heat and mix gently with a spoon until the ingredients melt and dissolve. Take the pan off the heat.
    • Add oats and dried cranberries and stir until well combined.
    • Put the mixture into prepared baking tin and smooth it over with the back of the spoon.
    • Sprinkle almond flakes and white chocolate chips over the oats mixture and press them gently into the oats with your hand.
    • Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Take the tin out of the oven and after the flapjacks (granola bars) had time to cool slightly (approx 5 min) cut them into size of your liking (I went for 16 squares).
    • Once they're cut, let them cool completely in a tin before transferring into airtight container.

    Notes

    • Nutritional information is approximate and should be treated as a guideline only.
    • Feel free to simply use 250g/3 cups of rolled/porridge oats and skip the jumbo oats altogether. I like to add them when I have them for a bit of added texture.
    • You can substitute golden syrup with honey or agave syrup if you're a vegan as they have similar consistency.
    • They will keep in the airtight container for over a week. Freezer friendly.
