Flapjacks

I knew of this challenge at Sweet and Simple Bakes.

Since I have most of the ingredients ready in my cupboard I baked this without really knowing how it would turn out. I followed the recipe ... as close as possible. I used brown sugar instead of demerera sugar. Since I only had 200g of butter, I added in another 50 g of margarine as I ran out of butter. The result was a very sweet, chewy and oily kind of granola bar. I used a bitter chocolate ganache to offset the sweetness and also to decorate the top.

When cutting the flapjacks into squares, I had a terrible time trying to remove the pieces from the paper lining. I must have used the wrong paper for baking...sigh! As a result my flapjack pieces became distorted squares with the rolled oats practically falling out from the inside while I cut ... LOL.
Taste and texturewise, I need to eat a couple more pieces before I would really grow to like it LOL.


I've eaten a slice after the batch cooled down and refrigerated the rest to be eaten for the next couple of days. I must say now I like to eat them cold from the fridge because the slice gave a chewy texture without it being too oily. I must say they are addictive. I'm glad I took part in this challenge cos' now I'm into thinking of the number of variations I can use to bake flapjacks again :-)

Here's the ROUND-UP.
