This flapjack is very tasty and a wee bit dangerous. It only takes 5 minutes and you don’t even have to measure the ingredients – just use your bog standard wooden mixing spoon for the quantities below.
Serve with good quality vanilla ice cream. The Patriarch is partial to M&S’s Madagascan Vanilla Gelato. Many a tub of soft scoop vanilla has been rejected now that he has discovered this £4 carton of liquid crack.
TIME 5 minutes
SERVES 1 (you can make two batches for two of you. Or two batches for one of you)
1 spoonful of golden syrup
1 spoonful of sugar – light brown or Demerara
4 spoonfuls of oats (gluten free, if necessary)
A matchbox sized knob of butter, see pic
Melt together the sugar, butter and golden syrup over a low heat. Turn the hob off and stir the oats in.
If you are a flapjack connoisseur, add more butter for a richer taste or more golden syrup for a sharper, sweeter contrast to the ice cream.
Replace the butter with dairy free spread.
