About this recipe: A sweeter twist on the Scottish classic and a national favourite. These delicious chocolate covered flapjacks can be made in 30 minutes. Waiting for the chocolate to set is the hard part!

Serves: 12 

  • 110g butter
  • 40g sugar
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 175g porridge oats
  • 100g chocolate (I like Galaxy®)

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:1hr setting  ›  Ready in:1hr30min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a tin and sprinkle with a little bit of sugar.
  2. Put the butter, the sugar and the golden syrup in a small pan over a low heat. Mix until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Take off the heat and add the porridge oats. Mix well till the oats are coated (if not add a little more golden syrup). Pour mixture in the prepared tin and smooth with the back of a spoon.
  4. Place flapjacks in the oven for 10 to 20 minutes, until golden brown on top. Remove from oven and let cool for 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Melt chocolate in the microwave using short 20 second intervals on high power. Stir in between till melted and smooth. Pour chocolate over the flapjacks. Set aside till the chocolate is set.


When the chocolate is partially set, score the top of the flapjacks into squares to make slicing easier later.

Very nice but too sweet for me even tho I reduced the sugar. Maybe it was the chocolate I used Dr Oetker dark 72%. Next time less. Otherwise they are delicious - 11 Sep 2016
