I think there is something special about flapjacks, they are this amazing sweet snack that is just so moreish, for me, it’s got to be the golden syrup! That unique taste is what completes the flapjack I love oats and could eat them everyday! Flapjacks have been something I’ve adored ever since I was a kid.

When I saw this recipe I didn’t think you could put Lotus biscuits in flapjacks. I had to try it and it didn’t disappoint. These flapjacks we easy to make and I added additional chocolate chips which worked really well.
