Traditional old fashioned oat flapjacks. These must be made with real butter. A nice treat for a wintry walk. If you materialize these chewy sweet delights from your bag with a hot flask of tea everyone will be very happy campers. This one is also very easy to adapt. I particularly like these flapjacks with a little unsweetened desiccated coconut mixed through. Either mix your favourite nuts or seeds into the batter or sprinkle on top. Just remember to cut these flapjacks while still warm in the tray.
