Fruity Flapjacks recipe

These really pack a punch with flavour. If you don't like the fruit in the recipe, omit it for something of your taste. Just make sure you use the same amount that's stated in the recipe.


  • 350g rolled oats
  • 175g butter
  • 175g brown sugar
  • 125g golden syrup
  • 150g sultanas
  • 100g apricots
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Zest of one orange


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas mark 4.

  2. Line and grease the insides of a 20cm square cake tin.

  3. Melt the butter, sugar and syrup in a saucepan. Once the sugar is dissolved, remove from the heat.

  4. Mix the sultanas, apricots, zest and oats in a bowl.

  5. Pour the butter and sugar mixture over the dry ingredients and mix together well.

  6. Press down into the cake tin and flatten down well.

  7. Bake for 30 minutes.

  8. Once cooled, cut into squares.

These are perfect for breakfast, too. Try them with some chopped mixed fruit sprinkled over the top.
