What Holds Flapjacks Together?
Golden syrup is the glue that holds flapjacks together, it’s melted with butter and light brown sugar before oats are mixed into it. This mixture binds the oats together like glue, it helps prevent it from falling apart once baked.
Flapjack recipes with a higher golden syrup content are less likely to crumble away and fall apart. Golden syrup also creates a pleasantly gooey texture and caramel-like taste.
Golden Syrup Alternatives
Despite golden syrup being a key ingredient, it is possible to make flapjacks without it! It simply needs a swap with another similar ingredient like honey.
There are many substitutes you can use instead of golden syrup, this post lists the best golden syrup substitutes you can use instead.
What Can I Put On Top Of My Flapjacks?
The best looking flapjacks always have toppings! To make flapjacks look as good as they taste, I’ve listed a few topping ideas you can use to decorate your own homemade flapjacks.
- Melted Chocolate
- Sea Salt
- Flaked Almonds
- Edible Flowers
- Crushed Nuts
Bear in mind, if you’re adding toppings, you most likely need to drizzle melted chocolate or icing first to make the toppings stick to it.
Equipment Needed For Flapjack Recipes
Baking Tin: I usually use a 9″ baking tin to make flapjacks. This creates around 16 medium slices. You can get more or less slices depending on how big the portions are cut. If you want chunkier flapjacks, use a smaller tin like this 8″ baking tin.
Parchment Paper: Used to line the baking tin and prevent the flapjack mixture from sticking to the tin.
Mixing Bowls: You’ll need a large enough mixing bowl to mix the ingredients together.
