Nutella® and cherry flapjacks

    45 min

    A nice little recipe I came up with. It's yummy and you can eat it warm or save it in an airtight container. They are a nice gift you can share with friends or keep to yourself 'cause they're too good to share. They taste really scrummy with hot chocolate or mocha.

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and line a 20cm square cake tin or an ovenproof dish with baking parchment and butter.
    2. Place the oats, cherry pieces, chocolate and Nutella® in a bowl while you melt the other ingredients.
    3. Put the sugar, butter, golden syrup, lemon extract and salt in a saucepan on a low heat.
    4. Stir it together until it's melted together and bubbling up the sides of the pan.
    5. Then take the pan off of the heat and combine the sugar mixture with the oat mixture.
    6. Make sure it's well mixed and spoon it into your prepped dish and smooth the surface.
    7. Place the dish in the centre of the oven and bake until golden brown. This should take around 20 to 30 minutes. Leave in the tin to cool until semi-solid then turn it out and cut it up.
    8. Enjoy! you now have delicious flapjacks you can eat :)


    You can doctor this recipe as you make it. If you prefer more chocolate or cherries or you want to use sultanas instead of cherries, then the recipe is really adaptable.
    Try to keep an eye on the saucepan when melting the butter-sugar mix because if it heats too quickly or is on a too high heat then the mix may caramelise or reduce down to the point where you don't have enough. If this happens then you can just add some more syrup or sugar. If you add more butter then your flapjacks may end up greasy.
