Flapjacks

The Ingredients

4oz  butter
7oz  rolled oats (porridge) 
2oz  plain flour
2 tbsp  honey
3oz  sugar

Pre-heated oven 180c/350f/gas mark 4
9 inch square tin or oven proof dish
20-25 minutes in oven till golden brown 

How to make the flapjacks Mammy style 

Put all wet ingredients into a saucepan heat over a low heat on hob, stir till all melted, will look like runny caramel.

While wet ingredients are on hob stir dry ingredients together, once wet ingredients are ready pour into dry ingredients and mix well till all is coated.


Turn mixture out into tin making sure its pressed firmly into all the corners then pop into oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, till golden brown.

When you take them out of the oven leave the flapjack to sit for five minutes then cut into, roughly 12 portions depending how big you want the flapjacks.  Leave to cool for a further half hour the flapjacks should then pop out of tin easily,  Don't leave to cool fully as they are near impossible to cut.

Then pop on the kettle and enjoy a cuppa and a flapjack!
