Fruit & Nut Flapjack

Updated: May 7

This is yet another version of my popular flapjack recipe. This time I decided to base it on my favourite chocolate bar which is Fruit & Nut. My Husband often treats me to a bar if he pops to the shops or a bag of Maltesers (he knows me very well!!!)


It is a lovely soft flapjack with chewy raisins, crunchy almonds and delicious milk chocolate chips.


I have tried lots of different versions of flapjack and some just fell apart and ended up on fruit crumbles and others were rock hard and nearly broke my teeth!!!


This recipe is made with condensed milk and holds together perfectly and it is a nice soft flapjack.



To start making the flapjack pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees centigrade (150 fan) Gas mark 3 then line a 9” x 9” (23cm x 23cm) square tin with baking parchment.



In a medium sized pan melt the butter, light brown sugar, condensed milk and golden syrup on a very low heat until the sugar has melted.



Leave to cool slightly before you add it to the oats.


Weigh the porridge oats, raisins, chopped almonds and chocolate chips into a large bowl and mix to combine.


Then add the cooled melted butter mixture into the oats.



Mix until fully combined.



Put the oat mixture into the tin, flatten using a palette knife. This is the one I use available on Amazon.



Bake for 20 minutes until the edges go slightly brown. The middle will still be very pale but it will set as it cools so don’t be tempted to cook any longer.



Leave to set in the tin then cut into squares. It is best to leave overnight or place in the fridge to make sure it is completely cold before cutting into slices.

Sarah’s extra slice……

Do not bake for more than 20 minutes.


This flapjack can be frozen for up to 3 months. I recommend freezing as individual slices and wrap well in clingfilm.
