Cinnamon & Raisin Flapjacks

Makes 16 squares
Time required 40 mins.
Per portion: 200 Kcal, 9g fat (5.1g saturated)
Suitable for vegetarians

butter 150g (5oz)
soft light brown sugar 110g (4oz)
golden syrup 110g (4oz)
ground cinnamon ¼-½ tsp
porridge oats 275g (10oz)
raisins 110g (4oz)

Preheat the oven to 160°C/325°F/Gas 3 and grease and line a 20cm (8in) square tin.

Put the butter, sugar, syrup and cinnamon into a large heavy-based saucepan and melt over a medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and mix in the oats and raisins.

Tip the mixture into the prepared tin and spread evenly. Lightly press the mixture down with the back of the spoon to level the surface, then bake for 25–30 minutes until the flapjacks are turning golden brown around the edges.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes. Carefully mark the mixture into 16 squares with a knife. Leave until cold before removing from the tin and cutting fully into squares or bars. Store in an airtight container.
