Dark Chocolate, Sesame and Raisin Flapjack

For anyone that hasn’t done much baking and finds the prospect a little too much effort, flapjack is a great place to start. You simply melt some ingredients, stir it into some dry ingredients and compact it into a tin to bake – now where’s the effort in that? Once you get the satisfaction of eating your homemade treat I swear you will have to bug to bake more and more. I love flapjack, and although it’s full of butter, sugar and sticky golden syrup, it doesn’t feel as guilty as cake; but don’t let it fool you – its lying. This flapjack is pretty naughty and indulgent, and it lasted all of 2 days in our house – oooops!

Epernai 238

–          125g salted butter

–          125g soft dark brown sugar

–          3 tbsp golden syrup

–          200g rolled oats

–          100g raisins

–          50g dark chocolate – melted

–          Handful sesame seeds

Preheat the oven to 180’C

Melt the butter sugar and the syrup in a saucepan and stir until combined.

Pour the liquid into a bowl with the oats and the raisins and give it a good stir

Grease and line a 20cm square tin and tip the oats into it.

Press the mixture flat with the back of a wooden spoon until compact and then bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

Leave to cool for 10 minutes in the tin a then slice and cool completely on a rack.

Drizzle over the melted chocolate and the sprinkle the sesame seeds over the top.

Leave to cool before eating.

  1. I’m not a fan of raisins but this looks interesting. Kind of like some weird sesame brownies or something. Like Halvah.
