Creates, Bakes and Cakes

My office like many others loves to have cakes or sweet treats in the office to munch on whilst working. There are plenty of ideas out there for simple bitesize snacks to have with both your 9am morning coffee and 3pm tea break. Flapjacks are an easy recipe that can be mixed with fruit, nuts or covered in chocolate. Oats are also great for releasing slow burning energy meaning you can stay focused for longer.

What you will need:

- 175g (6oz) butter or soft margarine

- 100g (4oz) caster sugar

- 60ml (4 tbsp) golden syrup

- 275g (10oz) rolled oats

- 2 tbsp extra fruit, seeds or chocolate chips

Here’s the ‘how to’ on making a soft sweet flapjack:

Preheat your oven to 180°C, Gas Mark 4, and line the base of a small baking tin (20cm x 24cm) with baking parchment.

In a pan place 175g (6oz) butter or soft margarine, 100g (4oz) caster sugar and 60ml (4tbsp) golden syrup. Heat gently until the butter has melted and sugar dissolved.

Remove from the heat and stir in 275g (10oz) rolled oats along with any extra fruit, seeds, nuts or chocolate that you want to add.

Transfer the mixture into the prepared tin and press down firmly with the back of a spoon.

Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes until it goes golden brown around the edges – it will still be soft when you remove it from the oven as it firms as it cools, don’t leave it in the oven to go hard as it will become brittle and fall apart.

Allow it to cool in the tin for 15 minutes before cutting into small squares and leaving it to cool completely, then remove it from the tin.

For some added flare melt some chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water on the hob before using a spoon or knife to flick it onto the surface of the flapjack.
