Luxury Flapjacks

Makes 24 | Preparation time 15 mins | Baking time 20-25 mins

Ingredients

For the flapjacks:

  • 225g butter
  • 225g soft brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp runny honey
  • 375g porridge oats
  • 90g dried sour cherries
  • 50g flaked almonds

For the topping:

  • 100g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 160˚C/140˚C fan/gas mark 3. Grease and line the base and sides of a 25x35cm baking or Swiss roll tin. For the flapjacks, place the butter, sugar and honey in a large pan and heat until the butter has melted. Add the oats, cherries and almonds and mix well until fully combined.
  2. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared tin pressing down gently with the back of a spoon to level the top. Bake for 20-25 mins until the top is a pale golden colour. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin for 10 mins. Cut into portions then leave in the tin to cool completely.
  3. For the topping, melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water. Remove the flapjacks from the tin and one at a time, dip the bottom of the flapjacks into the melted chocolate to form a thin coating. Place top down on a cooling rack until the chocolate has set.

TIP:

* If you’re baking the flapjacks for kids they might prefer a sweeter taste so replace sour cherries with glacé cherries and use milk chocolate for the topping.
