Ingredients

  • 200 g Peanut Butter
  • 200 g Demerara Sugar or light brown sugar
  • 200 g Golden Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract optional
  • 400 g Rolled Oats

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (160 fan/ 350F/ Gas 4) and line a 20 x 30cm baking tin with baking paper.
  • In a large pan melt together the peanut butter, sugar and syrup on a low heat.
  • Take the pan off the heat and mix in the vanilla extract and oats.
  • Press the oat mixture into the prepared baking tin and bake for 18-20 minutes. Remember, your flapjacks will still be soft to the touch when you take them out of the oven, but will harden up on cooling.
  • Allow to cool before cutting into bars.

Notes

Variations: 
  • Add 100g of milk chocolate chips for a peanut butter chocolate chip flapjack. After you've stirred in the oats, wait for a few minutes before adding the chocolate chips to make sure they don't melt completely.
  • Make them fruity by adding 100g dried fruit, such as raisins, chopped dried apricots or dried cranberries.
  • Chopped nuts would make a delicious nutty variation. 100g of chopped pecan nuts or walnuts would work well.
  • I've used smooth peanut butter in these flapjacks, but crunchy peanut butter would give the flapjacks a lovely texture.
