Banana flapjacks

Hello again and Happy Easter,

I'm really not sure if anyone is following my blog but if so I apologise for my lack of enthusiasm with the posting!
I hope to post more regularly and show some of the recipes and products I've tried. I'm also starting a photography course so I hope to experiment with some of my photos and hopefully learn some helpful food photo tips.
For now I thought I'd share some yummy banana flapjacks which were pretty delicious!

Banana Flapjacks

125g butter

2 tbsp golden syrup

85g light muscavado/brown sugar

350g porridge oats

2 medium ripe bananas, peeled and mashed

1.Preheat oven to 180c. Lightly butter a baking sheet, 9” x 13” (I used a 9-inch square pan).

2.Gently melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a large saucepan.

3.Once melted, stir in the porridge oats until completely combined.

4.Stir in the mashed banana and turn out the mixture into the greased sheet. Press down firmly.

5.Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the flapjacks are starting to brown around the edges and the middle feels firm to the touch. They will firm up as they cool, so leave in the baking sheet before cutting and removing. Cut into 2-3” squares.
