Pre grease your 7 inch square tin and place to one side.

5. Pour contents into the pre-greased tin and press down using a plastic spatula (as the batter would stick to a spoon) and press down into all the corners.

7. Once golden brown remove from the oven leave in the tin for a few minutes this is where you can add some chocolate if you like to make chocolate flapjacks, I used some large chocolate buttons, the heat from the flapjacks is helping the chocolate to melt.

8. Leave a few minutes then place on a wire rack to cool. (They will still be slightly soft but will crisp up when fully cooled). Before they are fully cooled, score and cut into slices.

Tip: Once fully cooled place in the fridge until the chocolate has set.
