Chocolate flapjacks


Hmmmm… another one of my staples in an emergency!

350g unsalted butter

3T golden syrup

175g soft brown sugar

175g muscavado sugar

175g good quality oats

275g porridge oats

6T good quality cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 140 degrees and butter 17x28cm backing tray

Melt butter, syrup and sugars in large saucepan.  Don’t allow to bubble. Mix in oats and cocoa.

Press mix into tray and bake for 18-20 min (allow to cook through but not bubble as will go toffee like and it should stay moist).

Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 20 min before slicing. Allow to cool fully before removing from tray.

Other ideas:

Add 2T coconut or handful of sultanas with oats

Add some chocolate bits or marshmellow

Melt some white chocolate and drizzle over the top to decorate – if you feeling fancy!

PS: I think credit for the recipe goes to Green and Blacks recipe book but I got this from a lovely neighbour!
