Flapjacks & Granola Bars - "no Washing Up" Easy Recipe

Introduction: Flapjacks & Granola Bars - "no Washing Up" Easy Recipe

I hate washing cookwares almost as much as I love baking. So I have become obsessed with creating recipes that minimize the number of bowls & utensils required. These "no-washing-up" flapjacks / granola bars are one of my favorites. They're easy & tasty, and will make your home smell so amazing, like a bakery & candy shop rolled into one. To be honest, even if you don't like oaty snacks, they're worth making just for the smell...

Quick list: butter, rolled oats, all-purpose flour, salt, sugar, (seeds / chopped nuts - optional), golden syrup (alternatives - honey / sweet condensed milk).

Quick rundown: line a tray with foil > melt butter in the oven > stir in rolled oats > add flour & salt & sugar & optional seeds > stir to combine & press into even layer > drizzle golden syrup all over > bake (shorter time for chewy flapjacks or longer for crunchy granola bar) > cut into pieces when cooled

All ingredient details & step by step guides are in the video above. Please take a look.

    I enjoyed making your Oatmeal Tuiles, and will try these soon! I am from the USA in the south, and the word "flapjacks" here means the same as pancakes, hotcakes or griddle cakes - breakfast food served with butter and syrup. I've never seen it used to refer to a chewy bar snack, but I'm willing to learn something new!

    It's a very British thing. :)

    Golden syrup is also a very British ingredient. If unavailable where you are, sweetened condensed milk is a good alternative.

    Thanks. :)

    I'm not a food snob, but I really don't like store-bought flapjacks or granola bars, even the fancy-packaged ones. These homemade ones are so much better. Nothing fancy, just a comforting combination of sweet, buttery & oaty!
