The festive season is all about baking, and these Cinnamon Flapjacks are so easy. Just 6 ingredients, minimal prep and so simple. Great to make with kids.
soft light brown sugar
Preheat your oven to 170C/Gas mark and line a 15x10cm baking tray with baking paper
In a large sauce pan, melt the butter over a low heat.
Add the sugar and golden syrup and once it has dissolved into the butter, remove from the heat.
Stir in the oats, cinnamon and ginger. Taste to see if it has enough cinnamon/ginger in it for you. If not, add more to taste. Mix well so all the oats are covered.
Pour the mixture in to your baking tray and put in the oven for 20 minutes. The middle should still be a little soft, but the edges will have started to brown.
Remove from the oven and allow them to cool completely. Then remove them from the tin and cut in to slices.
Try not to over heat the butter, otherwise it will split like it has in our photo. However it won't make much of a difference to the final taste and texture.
Add a pinch of salt to intensify the flavour. However we left this out as we were making it for kids to eat.
Make these gluten free by by using gluten free oats
Leave them to cool completely before cutting. This allows them to keep their shape.
