Susan of Team FINDRA won the Bake Off competition in January for the Swift Trails/Jenny Graham ride out for Peebles Outdoor Film Festival! Her peanut butter flapjacks were Jenny’s hands down favourite out of all that was on offer, so we just had to share the recipe with you!
- 175g crunchy peanut butter
- 75g Light Brown Sugar
- 6 rounded tbsp Golden Syrup
- 2 tbsp rapeseed or sunflower oil
- 75g raisins
- 175g rolled porridge oats
- 100g semi-sweet dark chocolate
- 40g peanut butter
- 1 tbsp milk
- 25g salted peanuts, roughly chopped
1/. Preheat the oven to 180C (160Cfan) Gas 4. Grease and line a shallow 20cm square tin.
2/. Put the peanut butter, sugar and golden syrup and oil into the microwave for 1 minute or heat gently in a pan on the hob until melted.
3/. Stir in the raisins and oats. Turn into the tin, level and press the mixture evenly and firmly with the back of a spoon.
4/. Bake for 25 minutes or until just golden around the edges.
5/. Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes then cut into 12 or 16 pieces whilst still warm.
6/. When completely cool, turn onto a cooling rack.
7/. Melt the chocolate with the peanut butter and milk, stir until smooth. Spread evenly over the flapjack then scatter over the extra peanuts. Allow to set then slide onto a board and cut into portions with a sharp knife.
