Method

  1. Heat the oven to 150°C/130°C fan/gas 2. Put all the ingredients, except the nuts and oats, in a large pan with a pinch of salt and stir until melted. Add the nuts and oats and stir well with a wooden spoon to coat. Spoon the mixture into the lined cake tin, level the top, pressing down slightly, then bake for 25 minutes.
  2. Remove the tin from the oven and transfer to a wire rack. Score with 16 squares, then leave to cool completely in the tin.
  3. For the topping, put the chocolate and maple syrup in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water); heat until just melted, then stir and drizzle over the flapjacks. Sprinkle with chopped pecans, then cut into squares to serve.
