Flapjack is perfect for a snack, to put in packed lunch boxes, for supper or even as part of a healthy breakfast. It's really easy to make so even if you've never baked before you'll be amazed at the results you get!

I work with children and plan a lot of activities for them to do. Their favourite activity is definitely baking but sometimes it's hard to find recipes that are easy enough for them to manage, don't take to long to make or cook, and they will enjoy eating by the end of it. Flapjack is the perfect solution to these three problems. So lets have a look at the recipe i use and how we make it.

100g margarine

100g demerara brown sugar

1 tablespoon syrup

150g rolled oats


  1. Grease a 7 inch tin and heat the oven at 160 degrees.
  2. Melt margarine, sugar and syrup in a large bowl in the microwave stirring regularly should take about 30 seconds.
  3. Once melted add the oats gradually and mix well.
  4. Put the ingredients into the greased tin and put in the oven.
  5. Cook for 20 minutes or until browned.
  6. Cut into portions and leave to cool!

Perhaps add some coconut, some cherries, sultana's or other dried fruit, chocolate chips, or drizzle melted chocolate on top, melt in some marshmellows or add some peanut butter. These are some of the favourite additions we put in at the after school club and the children love them, and the parents often try them as well. So be adventurous, and if you come up with any amazing taste sensations to add let don't hesitate to let me know, I'm sure the children at club will love to try them.
