Cook: 30 minutes



  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 100g golden syrup
  • 50g brown sugar
  • 250g natural museli with fruit and nuts(nuts optional)
  • 50g sultanas

  1. Flapjacks: Melt the butter with the golden syrup and sugar. Place the remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix in the melted butter mixture.
  2. Lightly butter a deep tray. Spread the flapjack mixture over the tray so that it is around 3-4cm thick and press it down firmly.
  3. Place the flapjacks in an oven preheated to 180C for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave for 10-15 minutes.
