This is a super easy recipe and great for a rainy Sunday afternoon! Change the amount of cherries, almond, and coconut to suit your taste. Play around with the ingredients and let me know how they turn out! :)
400g rolled oats
125g light brown sugar
50g caster sugar
200g glacier cherries chopped into quarters
125g golden syrup
75g dessicated coconut
1 tsp almond extract (optional)
50g white chocolate (optional)
Step 1] Preheat oven to 170C fan.
Step 2] Melt the butter, sugars, and syrup in a large saucepan over a low heat. Stir continuously until all the butter has melted and sugar dissolved.
Step 3] Remove from the heat. Stir in the oats, coconut and cherries. Add the almond extract here if desired.
Step 5] Press the mixture into a lined 9 x 9 tin and bake for around 35 minutes, until golden around the edges. Note that if you do not have a 9 x 9 tin you can use a different one, but your cooking time might change.
Step 6] Leave to cool in the tin before removing and slicing into squares. This is important as otherwise the flapjacks will crumble!
Step 7] Optional: Decorate with melted white chocolate.
