  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 100g Pure Maple Syrup, Dark Robust
  • 80g brown sugar
  • 250g rolled oats
  • 50g unsweetened desiccated coconut (optional)
  • Chocolate drizzle (optional)
  • 50g chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and line a 17cm x 17cm tin with parchment paper. Gently heat the butter in a sauce pan and add the maple and sugar. Heat until the butter, maple and sugar all become incorporated.
  1. In a large bowl add the oats and coconut and then pour the wet ingredients over this. Using a wooden spoon mix well.
  1. Tip the mixture into the prepared tin and flatten with back of a spoon. To make it compact, using another piece of parchment paper, lay it over the oat mixture and press down to make it even and flat.
  1. Bake for about 30 minutes until golden and browned around the edges.
  2. Cool for 5 minutes in the tin and then mark out 12 flapjacks.
  3. This is the hardest bit…allow to completely cool before cutting into bars.
  1. To make chocolate covered flapjacks, place the chocolate in a microwavable dish and heat for 20 seconds in the microwave and then stir in melted coconut oil to the chocolate. Drizzle over the cut flapjacks or spoon on to completely cover and allow to set.
