My 9 yr old can make these completely unaided (except one of us had to take them out of the over for her). If you have younger little ones, they love weighing out the oats, pressing the flapjacks in the tray and licking the golden syrup spoons!

Variations

Instead of just plain flapjacks, you can add any of the following to the mixture at step 4 :

  • nuts
  • raisins
  • dates
  • chopped apricots
  • sunflower seeds or sesame seeds

Freezing

These flapjacks will stay fresh for a number of days if stored in an airtight container and can be frozen when cooled by placing squares in sealed freezer bag.
