A basic flapjack recipe is given a fruity, summery twist with the addition of sweet, sticky strawberry jam and desiccated coconut.
For the traditional recipe, try our old-fashioned flapjacks.
- 10g (5.5g saturated)
- 30.6g (16.2g sugars)
- 200g salted butter, cubed
- 200g soft brown sugar
- 150g golden syrup
- 500g rolled oats
- 500g thick strawberry jam, plus extra to serve
- 100g desiccated coconut, plus extra to serve
- Heat the oven to 160°C/140°C fan/ gas 3 and line a 20cm x 30cm baking tray (see tip). Melt the butter, sugar and syrup gently in a saucepan until smooth and well combined.
- Stir in the oats until combined. Put half the mix in the tin and spread out evenly to cover the base. Top with half the strawberry jam, then evenly scatter over half the coconut. Top with the remaining oat mixture, then repeat with the remaining jam and coconut. Bake for 40 minutes.
- Leave to cool in the tin, then turn out and cut into squares with a sharp knife. Stack into pretty boxes, if you like.
You’ll definitely need to line the tray. Trust us on this.
Make the flapjacks up to a week in advance and keep in an airtight container.
