Watch how to make Treacle flapjacks
- 250g (8oz) butter
- 250g (8oz) light soft brown sugar
- 175g (6oz) black treacle
- 500g (1lb) rolled oats
- 18 x 28cm (7 x 11in) tray bake tin, lined with baking parchment
Set the oven to 180°C (gas mark 4).
Cut the butter into cubes and place it in a saucepan along with the soft brown sugar and treacle. Place the pan over a low heat and stir until all the butter and sugar have melted.
Pour the melted mixture into the oats and mix well. Tip the mixture into the lined tin and level it out and press it down well.
Bake the tray bake in the centre of the oven for 40-50 mins, until it’s starting to turn a darker colour around the edges.
Remove the tray bake from the oven and mark it into 12-14 fingers, then leave the flapjack to cool in the tin.
When cold, use the lining paper to lift the flapjack out of the tin and then cut or break along the marked lines.
Top tip for making Treacle flapjacks
Top tip: Use ordinary oats rather than jumbo rolled oats, as the smaller oats will hold together better - for good value, use economy oats.
