These flapjacks are deliciously chewy, you could almost believe that these are super-healthy, if you just focus on the oats! 
175g butter
175g golden syrup 
175g muscovado sugar 
350g/12oz porridge oats
(I used gluten free oats for this recipe, but ‘regular’  rolled oats work just as well)
1⁄2 lemon, finely grated
zest pinch ground ginger 
50g chocolate drops

  • Preheat the oven to 150C/300F/Gas 2 and line a 20cm/8in square baking tin with baking paper.
  • Melt the butter in a medium pan over a low heat.
  • Brush a little on the baking paper.
  • Add the golden syrup and sugar to the butter and heat gently.
  • Once the sugar is dissolved and the butter is melted, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the porridge oats, lemon zest and ginger.
  • Press the mixture into the tin and then sprinkle with chocolate drops. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 15 minutes.
  • Turn the cooked mixture out on to a chopping board and cut into squares.
