Flapjacks are good at any time of the year but adding some festive flavours makes them extra yummy! I added dates and ground almonds but cranberries would be really good too.
2 tablespoon Golden Syrup (can use honey)
50g Soft, Light Brown Sugar
175g Porridge Oates
50g Ground Almonds
100g Dates (I left mine whole but they could be chopped depending on taste)
Pre heat the oven to 180c
In a large saucepan, heat the butter, syrup and sugar, stirring to melt. Remove the pan from the heat once the ingredients are melted together well. Add porridge oats and ground almonds and mix together well.
Pour the mixture into a small, square, greased tin. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden. Cool for a few minutes then cut into squares or slices before cooled completely.
