Cinnamon Apple Flapjack Recipe

Updated: Sep 24, 2022

cinnamon apple flapjacks

Flapjacks are popular British sweet treats. They can be made chewy or crunchy, they require only a few ingredients and take very little time to make.

Traditionally they are made with rolled oats, butter, sugar and golden syrup.

This recipe is designed to be Gluten-free and Dairy-free, but if your diet allows you to have dairy, then feel free to use butter instead of the dairy-free alternative. You can add dried fruit such as raisins, cranberries, apricots or even almond flakes if desired.

Prepping, mixing and baking shouldn't take more than 30 minutes, so I dare describe this as a quick recipe.

You will need:

cinnamon apple flapjacks ingredients

  • 3 small apples, grated

  • 3 cups of oats (240g)

  • 100g golden syrup

  • 100g dairy-free spread/ butter

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 30g raisins/sultanas (optional)

How to:

  • Grate the apples and simmer them in a pan for a few minutes,

  • Add the cinnamon

  • Add the golden syrup

  • Add the dairy-free spread/butter

  • Add the oats and dried fruit and mix well for a minute

  • Pour the mixture into an oven dish (20X20cm baking tin would be ideal) coated with baking parchment

  • Press the mixture lightly with the back of a spoon, making sure it's even

  • Bake at 180C/160 fan/gas mark 4 until golden-brown (about 12-15 minutes)

  • Cut it into squares, rectangles, or whatever other shapes you can make; they are equally acceptable, I'm not judging you.

  • Enjoy!

I prefer the flapjacks a bit chewy, but if you want them to be a bit crispier, bake them for a few minutes longer. If you're not a fan of dried fruit, that's ok, you don't have to add them to this recipe.

I hope life is treating you well.
