Flapjacks are not something I make that often. I tend to make more cakes. But somehow with flapjacks, you feel that they're that little bit healthier!

The recipe below is ridiculously easy. My little girl and I made it together and she basically did most of it!

Apple & Raisin Cinnamon Flapjacks

You will need:

A 8" x 8" square baking tin greased and lined at the bottom with baking paper 

Makes approx 12 flapjacks

125g butter or Stork
125g light brown/soft brown demerera sugar
3 tbsp golden syrup 
250g porridge oats 
2 small eating apples, grated (either with skin on or peeled)
50g raisins
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 160 deg (fan)

Melt the butter, sugar and syrup together in a pan on a low heat. Leave to cool slightly. 
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and pour in the butter mixture. 
Mix well, tip into the baking tray and pat firmly down using the back of a spoon. 
Bake for 20-25 minutes until lightly golden brown. The flapjack will still be very soft so leave to cool in the tin. You can score out the portions while it's still warm.
Once cool, cut into squares.
Store in an airtight tin. 

Happy Eating!
