How to Make: Gluten free Flapjacks

How to Make: Gluten free Flapjacks

Hi and welcome back.

I hope you are having a lovely week and looking forward to the weekend; I know I am. With the weather improving, I am finding myself getting out of the house more and more. Being a coeliac and suffering from hanger a lot, I often carry snacks with me when we are out and about so I don’t get hungry. My latest snack of choice is flapjacks. I seem to be okay with the gluten free oats from Sainsburys so have been enjoying their Free From bars. A few weeks ago, I decided to try and make my own so I could add other flavours to them; chocolate and raisins are always a winning combination in my book! Best of all, this method doesn’t require a blender like other recipes I’ve seen. This recipe has worked so well for me so I wanted to share it with you. I hope you enjoy. C -x-

Cooked Flapjacks

Method

  • Melt together the butter, sugar and 80g of the golden syrup.
  • Remove from the heat and add oats, chocolate chips and raisins.
  • Stir until fully combined.
  • Add an extra 20g golden syrup and stir.
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200 degrees Celscius for 20-30 minutes or until the flapjack has turned brown on top.
  • Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 15 minutes.
  • Use a knife to score lines across the flapjack so it is easier to cut once cooled.
  • Leave to cool overnight.
  • Cut the flapjack and store in a seal tight container for 5 days.

Tips

  • Don’t use greaseproof paper to line your baking tin, it will only stick to the flapjack and you will be unable to remove once cooled.
  • I used a lightly greased silicone baking tray for my flapjacks.
  • Don’t like raisins? Why not try adding chopped walnuts, dates or apricots?
  • Dairy free too? Simply use a dairy free butter and Sainsburys Free From Dairy chocolate chips.
