It was an utter delight growing up to open my school lunch box and find my mother had made flapjacks. Chewy, gooey (if you don't overcook them) oat, sugar and cornflake bars bound with lots of butter and nutty golden syrup. It didn't mater I was bouncing around the classroom the rest of the day in a sugar wobbly. These were good!

So easy to make, throw a few ingredients into a bowl, stir, pour onto a flat baking sheet and cook for about 20 minutes (did I mention NOT to overcook them) How long do they keep? I don't know, ours are always gone the same day… and I bet you can't just eat one 🙂

Here's a link to the golden syrup…
