All the festive vibes wrapped up in a flapjack. Even if you aren’t a major gingerbread fan, these flapjacks are sweet and warming and you should definitely make them. Recipe makes 8 bars.


Preheat the oven to 170C.

Melt the butter with both sugars & the syrup/honey.

Pour in to a bowl with the oats & stir, before adding the egg and mixing thoroughly.

Add all the spices (you can adjust this to taste) + any extra you’re using (dried fruit/chocolate chips).

Transfer into a lined baking tray and push down with the back of a spoon until the top is flat.

Bake for 20 mins.

Allow to cool then cut in to 8 bars (or more/less).
Melt the chocolate and drizzle over the top.
