A classic, chewy recipe with a chocolatey twist making them seriously yummy and that tad more indulgent than your normal flapjack!
Flapjacks are really simple to make and they are the perfect recipe for kids to get involved with, mixing and tipping all the ingredients in. Amelia loved getting stuck in and flapjacks are so quick and easy and create minimal mess.
Armed with Wyke Farm Butter I gathered the rest of the ingredients and got everything set up for myself and Amelia to get baking. Wyke Farm is a brand I know as cheese and I’m a huge fan so I was definitely keen to test our their new butter to see how well it worked with our baking, which I can say was a huge success!
- 175g Butter
- 175g Soft Light Brown Sugar
- 250g Porridge Oats
- 1/4 Cup Golden Syrup
- 100g Chocolate Chips
- 200g Milk Chocolate
- Preheat the oven to 150C and grease your baking tin.
- Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup together on a low heat until combined.
- Mix together the melted mixture with the porridge oats.
- Stir in the 3/4 of the chocolate chips, mine actually melted but this worked out really nicely!
- Pour into your baking tin and sprinkle over the remaining chocolate chips.
- Flatten down the mixture with the back of a spoon.
- Bake for 35-45 minutes until golden on the top.
- Place onto a cooling wrack then cut into squares whilst still warm.
- Melt the 200g milk chocolate with a spoonful of butter in a bowl in a saucepan of water and keep stirring until thoroughly melted.
- Either coat the top of your flapjacks or drizzle over them depending on which you prefer. You could do this before cutting them but I found it easiest to do it after.
- Wait for the chocolate to set on top and then ENJOY!
These flapjacks came out so nicely, initially when I bit into them I thought I possibly should have added some more butter or syrup but after a couple bites they were so good. Seriously chewy but the smooth chocolate flavour and the added chocolate on the top makes them so yummy and a real treat!
Amelia really liked baking these, as other than the melting bits she was able to tip all the ingredients into the correct bowls and mix it all together. Obviously it wouldn’t be baking without testing out your pre-baked goods and Amelia certainly did that and gave the flapjacks a thumbs up!
These double chocolate flapjacks went down a treat with family we had staying this weekend so I will definitely be making them again and I really want to test out some different flapjack recipes, maybe slightly healthier than these double chocolate ones!
Let me know you if you try out this recipe!
