Strawberry & Basil Flapjack

I was trying out some different Strawberry combinations for flapjack and this was definitely a firm favourite!


The tart flavour of the freeze dried strawberries cuts through the sweetness of the flapjack and I added fresh basil from my garden to make a delicious flavour combination.


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 degrees fan) or gas mark 3 then line a 23cm x 23cm (9” x 9”) 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.



Weigh the porridge oats, freeze dried strawberries and basil into a large bowl.



Then add the melted butter mixture into the oats.



Then mix until fully combined and put the oat mixture into the tin.



Flatten and level the mixture in the tin.



Bake for 18-20 minutes until the edges go slightly brown. The middle will still be very pale and will set as it cools.



Once cool cut into slices.

Sarah’s extra slice……


You could use dried if you can’t get fresh basil.


Caster sugar would work perfectly if you can’t get light brown sugar.
