Peanut Butter and Honey Flapjacks
Flapjacks are one of the things we first learn how to bake at home. Quick and easy, they don't require much equipment, time or technical know-how. These treats make for some delicious bank-holiday baking and are a great way of incorporating local produce and seasonal flavours.
Makes 10-12 flapjacks
For the flapjacks:
8oz porridge oats
2oz runny honey
3oz dark chocolate chips
3 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
Pre-heat the oven to 160 degrees c.
Line a medium sized rectangle baking tray with greaseproof/baking paper.
Melt the butter, sugar, peanut butter and honey together in a large pan over a medium heat.
Once everything is melted, take the pan off the heat and stir in the chocolate, oats and raisins.
Spoon the mixture into the lined baking tray, flattening it so it evenly fills the tin.
Bake the flapjack mixture for around 20 minutes, or until it has started to harden in the corners, but is still soft in the centre.
Leave the flapjack to cool in the tin before slicing and serving.
Keeps well in an air-tight container for up to a week.
