Chewy Flapjack Recipe




Chopped rolled (cheap porridge) oats (asda own brand scottish oats). 125 g
Rolled (premium porridge) oats (asda own brand scottish oats) 125 g
Margarine (aldi baking spread) 150 g
Golden syrup ( asda own brand) 75 g
Sugar (granulated) 75 g


  1. Put the 150 g of margarine, 75 g of sugar & 75 g of golden syrup in saucepan (or microwaveable bowl if using a microwave ) and heat until it is all liquid.
  2. Meanwhile line the baking tin with greaseproof paper.
  3. Mix the oats into the liquid. Leave to cool a little if using chocolate chips as you don’t want them to melt.
  4. Put the mixture into the baking tin & press flat.
  5. Bake at 175 °C (Gas Mark 4) for 25 to 30 minutes.
  6. Cut into squares whilst still hot
  7. Leave to cool and set.

Notes: asda own brand golden syrup is best as it is not as sweet as Tate and Lyles . If using tate and Lyles use less sugar or golden syrup to adjust sweetness accordingly .

I use a 20 x 20 cm tin

you can use just one type of oats instead of two

use 60g choc chips or any other flavourings you like such as nuts.
