Chocolate ginger flapjacks

Who doesn’t love a flapjack? Especially when it is ginger and covered in Chocolate.  Umm .. Chocolate Ginger Flapjacks – delicious

You Will need:-

350g rolled oats

4 generous tablespoons golden syrup

200g butter

100g wholemeal plain flour

3 bulbs of ginger (chopped small) and…

2 tbsp syrup from a jar of ginger in syrup

Pecans – chopped – 100g

Delicious sultanas – 100g

and soft prunes – 100g

Zest and juice of 1 lemon


200g milk or dark chocolate-  for the topping




If you are not using an Aga then pre heat your oven to 180C/gas 4

Alternatively, for ElectricKit Agas – switch your digital dial to 180C

What to do

Put the chocolate in a bowl at the back of the Aga to melt

Taking a large pan melt the butter, syrups and zest of lemon

Chop the walnuts, prunes and ginger bulbs and add to the melted butter…removing from heat

Add the oats and flour and the juice of lemon and stir until all oats are covered and the mixture is combined

Additionally, pour the flapjack mixture into a half size lined roasting tin.

Bake Time : – 20 minutes

(ElectricKit agas – place your tin on the second set of runners down from the top.  After 5 minutes, place the cold plain shelf beneath for the remaining time

2 oven Aga, place grid shelf on floor of roasting oven with cold plain shelf on the second set of runners above and bake for about 18 mins

Remove from the oven when cooked and allow to cool in the tin for 10-20 minutes before pouring over the melted chocolate (I made squiggles but you can make it a smooth coating)

After 10 minutes score the top of the chocolate making it easier to cut when completely cooled.
