    Prep Time10 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time30 mins

     350 g unsalted butter
     3 tbsp golden syrup
     175 g light soft brown sugar
     175 g light muscovado sugar
     450 g rolled or porridge oats
     6 tbsp Green and Black's cocoa powder

    1

    Butter the baking tray.

    2

    Melt the butter, syrup and both sugars in the saucepan. Do not allow them to bubble. Mix in the oats and the cocoa.

    3

    Use a fork to press the mixture into the baking tray and bake for 18-20 minutes. The flapjack needs to cook to the centre but you don't want them to bubble, otherwise they will be too toffee-like. They should stay moist.

    4

    Remove from the oven and leave to cool for about 20 minutes before slicing up. Leave to cool completely before removing from the tray.

    5

    Hint: these flapjacks are delicious with 2 tablespoons of dessicated coconut, or a handful of sultanas added with the oats. Equally tasty is 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds, but you will also need a handful of extra oats because the seeds will make the flapjacks oily.
