Recipe: Apple, Maple and Pecan Flapjacks

Chewy Apple, Maple and Pecan Flapjacks

Chewy Apple, Maple and Pecan Flapjacks

When I came up with this recipe, I had recently discovered a love of pecan nuts and have therefore decided to add them to another of my much loved treats, along with the maple syrup that had been sitting in my cupboard for months. These flapjacks are a mouth-watering concoction that takes nice healthy ingredients like apples, nuts and oats, and smothers them is sugary satisfaction.The crunchy vs chewy debate between flapjack lovers is as never-ending as that of the crunchy vs smooth peanut butter dispute. Personally, I’m in team chewy. I would much rather bite into a gorgeous gooey cluster of oats than break my teeth on a rock hard biscuit. If you prefer the latter then I recommend that you save yourself the trouble of baking and go and buy a Hobnob (alternatively, leave your flapjacks in the oven for a little longer to crisp up!)


150g unsalted butter
75g light brown soft sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2 rounded tbsp golden syrup
2 rounded tbsp maple syrup
250g rolled oats (porridge oats)
100g pecan nuts, roughly chopping
1 large apple, peeled and diced


(preheat oven to 180*c and line a 20cm square baking tray with greaseproof paper)

– melt the butter, sugar and syrups together in a large saucepan
– take off the heat and stir in the oats, nuts, apple and cinnamon
– press the mixture into the lined tray and bake for 25 mins, or until golden
– allow to cool before removing from the baking tray and cutting into squares
