Butterscotch Flapjacks

Butterscotch Flapjacks

One of my sons has a new love for flapjacks so we make these regularly for him to enjoy.  Made with only 4 ingredients, you too can enjoy these simple to make flapjacks as an energy boost!

Ingredients for 12 servings

250g porridge oats
125g butter
5g butter (for greasing)
125g light brown sugar
3 tbsp golden syrup

(Example ingredient amounts given, adjust accordingly to your requirements)


  • Pre-heat your oven to 190°C fan/400°F.
  • Place the oats into a large bowl and grease and line an oven proof dish with baking paper.
  • Add the butter, sugar and golden syrup to a small sauce pan and place onto a medium heat.
  • Once the butter has melted, leave the pan onto the heat until the mixture has changed to a golden brown butterscotch.
  • Pour the butterscotch over the oats and take few minutes to coat the oats using a wooden spoon.
  • Spoon the mixture into the oven proof dish and press the mixture down before baking for 15-20 minutes until baked.
  • Check the bake at around 15 minutes to make sure the edges don’t catch too much as you want a sticky gooey flapjack and not burnt.
  • When you’re happy with the bake, remove it from the oven and leave to cool before attempting to remove it from the oven proof dish.
  • Once cooled, cut into bars and enjoy!


  • I used a pyrex dish measuring 17 x 22cm to bake my flapjacks.
  • Cut into portions and freeze in smaller batches.  They defrost like they’ve never been frozen!
