These flapjacks are made from store cupboard ingredients and are very simple to prepare.  You can use whatever you have at hand, sultanas, raisins, currants, pecans or any other nuts.  You can also omit the chocolate topping if you wish, but I have to admit…everything tastes better with chocolate!



    *If Golden Syrup is unavailable you can substitute it with honey.

    Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180C. Prepare an 18cm square baking tin by greasing and lining with baking paper.

    Step 2

    Place the butter, golden syrup and brown sugar in a pan and cook until butter melts and the sugar is dissolved, stirring continuously. Remove from the heat.

    Step 3

    In a bowl combine the oats, walnuts, cinnamon, sultanas and chocolate chips. Add these to the butter and sugar mix. Combine well with a silicone spatula.

    Step 4

    Take spoonfuls of the mix and place in the prepared tin, smoothing the top with the spatula.

    Step 5

    Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until it turns golden. Take out of the oven and leave to cool enough to handle.

    Step 6

    In the meantime, melt the chocolate in the microwave. Just chop into little bits and place in a bowl. Melt in 30 second bursts. Keep checking if it is melted by mixing it each time, since chocolate will still retain its shape in the microwave.

    Step 7

    Invert the tin onto a serving dish or chopping board, so the flapjack falls out. Gently remove the baking paper.

    Step 8

    Pour the melted chocolate onto the flapjack and spread with the spatula to cover.

    Step 9

    Leave to cool completely before cutting into squares or rectangles.


    Hi, I'm Jacqui, creator of The Blender and Senza G. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease in 2012 and since then, gluten free cooking has become a passion of mine. I just love food, experimenting and creating new gluten free recipes or re-inventing old favorite ones so I can still enjoy what I used to love before. Being Celiac makes cooking more challenging but with loads of patience, intensive research and a burning desire to learn more and more, living the Gluten Free lifestyle has become much much easier. My mission has been that gluten free food should taste good. Gluten Free does not mean taste free and I will keep on working to discover new ways of making it even better! ❤️
