Super Easy Maple Pecan Flapjack Recipe

Easy Flapjack Recipe | Chewy Flapjack Recipe | Best Flapjack Recipe

Ever since I was a kid I’ve always had a soft spot for flapjack. Especially the gorgeous, chewy kind! I’ve recently discovered that you can make the most incredible flapjack ever with one secret ingredient… Maple syrup! Where as us Brits usually opt for the traditional (and always amazing) golden syrup, maple syrup just brings a whole new wonderful flavour to the table. So this beautiful and crazy easy to make Flapjack Recipe encompasses a rich & sweet maple syrup flavour, while the added pecan crunch & tempting dark chocolate drizzle just knocks it right out of the park!

Here is what you will need to make 16.

  • 125g Unsalted Butter
  • 125g Dark Brown Sugar
  • 4 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 225g Porridge Oats
  • 75g Pecans, Roughly Chopped
  • 50g Dark Chocolate, To Drizzle

 

Essential Equipment

 

*Needs to be large enough to fit all the ingredients in except for the dark chocolate.

 

Easy Flapjack Recipe

First lightly grease the tin and line the base and 2 sides with baking paper. (So just one long strip down one side, over the middle and up the other side. I find this way easier than faffing around lining the whole tin when there’s simply no need!)

Preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C.

Then add the butter, sugar and maple syrup to the large saucepan. Turn the heat to medium and stir whilst it all gradually and completely melts.

Next, turn off the heat and dump in the oats and pecans.

Then give it all a really good mix until everything is nicely coated in the syrupy goodness…

Now press that beautiful mixture into your prepared tin and smooth it out firmly with the back of a metal spoon.

Then pop it into the oven to bake for 15 minutes until lightly golden all over.

Finally, leave in the tin for 10-15 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

When cooled, slice into 16 pieces (a 4 x 4 grid) and place back onto the wire rack set over a sheet of paper/newspaper.

To Decorate Your Flapjack

Break the dark chocolate into a small plastic food bag or piping bag. Place it straight into the microwave and heat in 10 second intervals, squishing it well between each time (technical term) until completely melted.

For the finishing touch, snip a small bit off a corner of the plastic bag and drizzle chocolate over each piece. Allow to set at room temperature before storing in an airtight container, also at room temperature. Consume within 4-5 days. (Not that they will last that long, let’s be honest!)
