English Flapjacks

When I first heard about English Flapjacks, this is NOT what I envisioned at all! Flapjacks here in America mean some sort of pancake. I guess I thought they would be big, fluffy pancakes with some stewed tomatoes on top or something. (yuck, gross!) But as I learned more about them, I discovered that they are made out of rolled oats, with sugar and butter in them. I, of course, was instantly a fan. Sugar and butter? Yes, I want to eat these! They are really simple to make and are a great “on the go” breakfast or snack.

ENGLISH FLAPJACKS

  • 3 cups old fashoined oats (not instant)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar 
  • 4 Tbsp. corn syrup 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Put your butter, brown sugar, and syrup in saucepan.  Heat on low until the butter and sugar have both melted.  You’ll be able to tell if the sugar has melted when you drag your spoon across the bottom of the pan.  If it still feels gritty, it’s not melted yet.

Once that mixture is melted, stir in the oats.

Once it’s well-mixed, press the mixture into a 8″ square pan and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
