Sunny Street Flapjacks

 I thought I would share a recipe with you - one inspired by a flapjack I'd had a few weeks ago and thought 'I can make that' and after a few tries and a few alterations - yes I can! 

Welcome to ....

Sunny Street Flapjacks

Pre heat oven to 180 deg c (gas mark 4 - I think!)

Line a square baking tin (20cm x 20cm-ish) with greaseproof paper

  • 200gm butter
  • 200gm sugar
  • 150gm golden syrup
  • 100gm chopped mixed nuts
  • 100gm cranberries
  • 100gm chopped prunes
  • 375gm porridge oats

Melt the butter with sugar and syrup. Stir in the cranberries, chopped prunes and nuts, add and thoroughly mix in the porridge oats.

Press well into the lined baking tray, flattening down until evenly spread. 
Bake for round about 20 minutes or until golden brown on top.

I cut the biscuits while still warm and still in the tin.
Let them cool initially in the tin, then transfer to a baking rack (all the time beating back Himself who hovers ready to taste test whilst they are still volcanically hot!!)

They are a delicious mix of crispy (the outside) and chewy (the middle) and the sharpness of the cranberries is super tasty in the nutty oaty mix.

Hope you try them - and if you do - let me know what you think!!



  1. I'll be adding cranberries to my shopping list. My mouth is watering now! Thanks for taking the time to experiment and better still to write out the recipe. THANKS!

    1. Brilliant! I am sure you will enjoy them! x

  2. This sounds delicious and I do love dried cranberries, so I'll definitely try this. So far, I've only managed to add sunflower seeds to Lily's favoured flapjack, but I'm working on it :)

    1. Make them for yourself and then chomp on them making mmmm mmmm mmmm noises and see if she can resist! ๐Ÿ˜„

  3. Thanks Kate, sounds good & may have to try that one soon. Take care & hugs.

    1. Thanks Susan - let me know how you go on :)

  4. Made some today! Yummy, yummy, yummy. Will try it out on my quilting friend tomorrow and see what she thinks. Beloved likes it. x

    1. Woo hoo! They are yummmy! so glad you like them ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’—

  5. I can vouch for them. Enjoyed them so much when we had tea in your garden last week. x๐Ÿงกx
