Put butter, sugar and syrup in the saucepan over a low heat and stir until butter melts.
Remove from heat, add the oats and mix well so that it’s evenly coated.
Transfer the mixture to baking tray, and press down with the spoon.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges.

You can add raisins, currants, cherries, nuts, dried fruit or anything else that you like. If you want to make chocolate flapjacks, just prepare as above. Then cool slightly, add chopped chocolate pieces before you add to the baking tray. You can also just melt some chocolate, and drizzle it over the flapjack after cooking it in the oven. This will give you a layered chocolate look on top of the flapjack.
Only cut into shapes before it’s completely cool, it will be easier to cut when it’s still warm.
You can cut them into any shape you like.
Store in a Tupperware container or cake tin.
Be careful when handling melted butter and sugar.
