Anyway, I did enjoy it, it was perfect with my steaming, hot and foamy cappuccino, so I resolved to make my own, based on the myriad of recipes available on the inter-web.
4 tablespoons golden syrup (about 100g)
200g brown sugar
Melt the butter, syrup and sugar together, stir in the oats and raisins, tip into a greased tray, bake for 40 mins at 150c.
I should say that the result was delicious, but I would make some changes. Add more fruit: apricots cranberries and maybe even dates would work well. Add less butter and sugar - maybe a bit of maple syrup instead of some of the golden syrup. Some pumpkin seeds would be good, some chopped walnuts, maybe even sesame seeds. Bake for a little less time, about 30 minutes would have been enough. But when all is said and done, this recipe turned out a flapjack that was buttery, sugary, oaty and satisfying - with or without that coffee. A pretty good lunchbox treat.
