Joan's raspberry flapjacks

On my first day in my new job, my line manager made some raspberry flapjacks for our first team meeting. The idea was that we'd sit around over a cup of tea and the flapjacks and chat about what I'd be doing for the next 18 months. Everyone agreed that the flapjacks were amazing, they were probably the best I've ever tasted.

I've taken the basics of Joan's recipe and adapted it to suit what I wanted from them, I wanted them to be gooey, sticky and with a bit of a punch from the raspberries. These flapjacks are not of the healthy variety, don't let the fruit fool you.


200g butter

4 tablespoons of golden syrup

200g dark brown sugar

420g rolled oats

200g frozen raspberries


1. Preheat your oven to 180/gas 4

2. Melt the syrup and sugar together

The golden nectar *swoons*

3. Add butter and oats and mix 

4. Pour half of the mixture into a baking tin

5. Scatter the raspberries over the mixture and then pour on the other half of the oats

6. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes

7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before cutting 



  1. This look beautiful! Flapjack is one of my favourite things to make - and eat, yum!

      It's the first time I've ever made them, can't believe I waited so long!
