Whether you class them as a cake or a biscuit - everyone agrees flapjacks are delicious! They are easy to make and have few ingredients. Brilliant for lunchboxes and perfect for picnics or afternoon pick-me-ups with tea! These Chewy Apple & Sultana Flapjacks are packed full of fruit without being too sweet. They are also great with added ginger or cinnamon powder for extra spice or seeds for an extra nutritious snack!
Preheat oven to 180 C and prepare the pan that you are using with a light spray of cooking spray or lining with silicone baking sheet.This recipe will fill a rectangular tray bake pan - I use two 7inch square silicon ones because they need greasing. Also if I make two batches I find I am more likely to have some leftover for lunchboxes!
Into a large saucepan, weigh out the dairyfree margarine, oil, sugar and golden syrup. Gently heat until the sugar has melted.
Add the oats, sultanas and chopped apple, to the saucepan of melted, syrupy ingredients. Stir until the dry ingredients are combined and coated.
Spread out into the baking tin and press down firmly, making sure it reaches the corners.
Bake at 180 C for 20-25mins until golden brown. (The flapjacks will looked undercooked – DO NOT panic they will firm up as they cool in the tin)
Cut into portions and leave in the tins to cool completely or as long as you can wait (still just warm in this house!)
