Traditional British Flapjacks the way you know and love them from the UK! Made with oats, butter, sugar and golden syrup, these oat bars are baked until lightly browned with a deliciously deep caramelized flavor!
Preheat the oven to 325 F. *For best results we recommend turning the fan off if you have that option.
In a saucepan heat the butter, sugar, salt and golden syrup until the butter is melted and the sugar is mostly but not entirely dissolved. (The demerara sugar crystals add a nice crunch to the finished flapjacks.) Place the oats in a large mixing bowl and pour the hot sugar mixture onto the oats. Stir to thoroughly coat the oats. Spread the oat mixture out onto a lined baking sheet according to desired thickness, forming it into a rectangle or square, and pat it down with a spatula or similar. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until lightly browned. The middle should be springy but not extremely soft. Let cool 10 minutes then cut into rectangles (or desired shape) and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before serving.Note: Number of servings depends on what size you cut the flapjacks.
