Does anyone else “Boredom Bake”? You know those afternoons when the weather’s rubbish, you’ve got nothing to do or watch on TV so you start bashing bowls around and experimenting with whatever you’ve got in the cupboard. Flapjacks are such an easy boredom bake – they taste good, they don’t necessarily have to look good and the mix will happily take on any extra ingredients you fancy throwing in.
I added peanut butter and Frosties to mine (…I bought a pack of Frosties on a whim the other day for the first time in about five years and OH MY GOD, now they’re all I eat). Alright, they’re not going to win any beauty awards, but they tasted pretty good. The peanut butter balances out the syrup a little, I think.
Peanut Butter Flapjacks
- 200g Porridge Oats
- 100g of Frosties
- 2 tbsp Peanut Butter (doesn’t matter whether it’s smooth or crunchy)
- 125g Butter
- 125g Dark Brown Sugar
- 4 tsbp of Golden Syrup
- Set the oven to 180° and grease and line a rectangular baking tin.
- Mix together the Porridge Oats and Frosties in a bowl.
- In a pan, melt together the butter, sugar, syrup and peanut butter over a low heat.
- Pour into the Porridge Oats and Frosties mix and then stir to combine.
- Once combined, pour into the baking tin and press down firmly.
- Bake for around 25 minutes in the oven then leave to cool. Once cooled, cut into rough squares. Easy!
