Traditional British Flapjacks
- Ready In:
- Melt the butter and the margarine in a deep saucepan over a very low heat.
- Add the brown sugar and honey and mix well until you have a liquid substance.
- Mix in the oats and pinch of salt -- it may be easier to add the oats in gradually stirring and covering the oats with the mixture.
- Mash the banana into a liquid pulp and mix into the oats (this will take a good few minutes to ensure that the banana is fully mixed in).
- Get a knife and spread the oats evenly over a greased baking sheet.
- Place the baking sheet onto the middle shelf in a 425F preheated oven (gas mark 5, 220 C) and bake for 15 minutes, checking the progress regularly. Take out when the mixture starts turning a darker color - don't over bake.
- Let stand for a minute or two, then cut the flapjack into as many pieces as you wish. You may find it best to leave the flapjacks for a few hours to cool down although you can eat them straight away.
- Drizzle with melted chocolate if you'd like as a way to decorate but this is really not needed unless you want to dress up the flapjacks.
