    175g Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar
    175g butter
    1 Tbsp Chelsea Golden Syrup
    275g porridge oats
    1 tsp ground ginger (optional)


    Grease a 20cm/8 in square baking tin. Preheat oven to 150°C.

    Put the Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar, butter and Chelsea Golden Syrup in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Stir with a wooden spoon. Remove the pan from heat. Tip the oats into the pan. Add the ginger (if using) mix well.

    Pour the mixture into your prepared tin. Use your hands or a spatula to level it off. Leave to stand for 15 minutes.

    Bake for at least 40 minutes, until golden and still a little soft in the middle. The mix firms up as it cools.
    Leave to cool in the tin. When mixture has cooled slightly, cut into squares. Take them out when cold and firm.

These are delicious but I feel like the butter quantity is way off. It’s dripping out of my flapjacks and has made quite a mess.

They are just in the oven now! We had to use icing sugar instead of brown sugar but hopefully they’ll still be delish! I tasted the mixture and it tasted excellent though! We also had to use maple syrup instead of golden syrup, but I sure that will be fine too!

Tasty enough, maybe use slightly less sugar and wouldn't cook the full 40 mins

I love this recipe. It is so yummy to have in a packed lunch. 5 stars - it's amazing.

Love these. Super quick and easy to make and deliciously caramelised. My tin was bigger than the recommended size so spread the mixture thinner and cooked for 20 mins, which was spot on. Will deffo whip these up again.

Great recipe and very easy to make. Love it so much.

I love this recipe so much and I'm sure the ginger flapjacks will be AMAZING to!

Don’t cook for 40 minutes, they will be burnt! About 20 minutes is enough.
