Extra Tips

– When you first check on your flapjacks in the oven, thay may feel very soft and seem undercooked. But don’t be tempted to put them back in the oven! They firm up when cooled.

– If you are adding extra ingredients to the recipe, mix them well into the oats to make sure they are all evenly incorporated. Make sure to use less oats if you are using other ingredients.

– When dipping in chocolate, try putting the chocolate in a small bowl and tilting it to the side to get a nice even coating. I prefer to use dark chocolate myself, although any chocolate works wonderfully.

– Flapjacks store well, meaning you can enjoy them for at least a week! Cover them in clingfilm and put them in an airtight container to maintain freshness for up to 10 days.
