I tend to do most of my baking on a Sunday, currently it’s my only day off and after a hard days work I don’t really want to be getting the rolling pin out. Last Sunday I was feeling pretty lazy and after a week of work and a horrible cold I wasn’t in the baking mood, but I wanted my weekly chocolate fix, so I decided on flapjacks and mixing in some chocolate and peanut butter. Flapjacks are the easiest thing to bake and the first thing I learnt to cook at the age of 10, and these are super easy and delicious, chewy, crunchy and cheap to make! They’re also a lot less indulgent compared to the chocolate chunk brownies I shared last week!
Ingredients – Makes 16
2 Tablespoons Golden Syrup
2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter
100g Dark Chocolate, broken into chunks
Method – About 30 minutes in total!
1. Preheat the oven to 175C, line a rectangular brownie tin. Melt the butter, peanut butter, syrup and sugar in a saucepan over a low heat. Once melted, turn off the heat, add the oats and chocolate chunks and stir well so the chocolate melts and everything is well combined.
2. Press the mixture in the tin and pop in the oven on the middle shelf and leave to bake for 20 minutes, cool completely (you can leave it in the tin) and then cut into squares!
