  3. Stir in the rolled oats, apricots and raisins.
  4. Spread the mixture in the prepared tin.
  5. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180° C, 170° C fan, gas mark 4 for 30-35 minutes.
  6. Cut into 16 pieces and leave in the tin until cold.

Now let the sweet, hypnotic smell of your flapjacks baking float around your kitchen and, once they’re ready, all that’s left to do is sink your teeth in! They are incredibly tasty and soft, but the syrup will caramelise the oats to also give you a gorgeous chewy texture. Remember that they can become slightly softer and chewier with each day that passes, so if you prefer a softer flapjack and can resist not eating them all as soon as you finish baking them, then leave them for a day or two for maximum happiness!
