If you love a piece of sweet, sticky flapjack with your cup of tea then you’re bound to be a fan of chocolate flapjack.

Just like regular flapjack, it requires only a few store cupboard ingredients, so it’s super easy to make, as well as your favourite bar of chocolate. It may not be the healthiest of foods, but it is the perfect treat for those days where you just fancy something a little sweet. Here’s how you can make it with this simple recipe from Cooking With My Kids.

Serves: 16 | Time: 20 minutes prep 20 minutes baking


150g (2/3 cup) butter

125g (3/8 cup) golden syrup

50g (1/4 cup) demerara sugar

220g (2 1/2 cups) porridge/rolled oats

150g (1 cup) chocolate chips

150g (1 cup) milk chocolate

You will also need a square baking tin


  1. Preheat your oven to 180C / 170C Fan / 350F and line a 18cm square baking tin with baking or parchment paper.
  1. In a small pot, add the butter, sugar and syrup. Put it over a low heat and stir it regularly until it has melted.
  1. Measure out your oats and add them to a large mixing bowl.
  1. Once the butter, sugar and syrup has melted, add it to the oats and mix everything together. Make sure your oats are fully coated. Once the mixture has cooled slightly add in your chocolate chips.
  1. Pour your flapjack mixture into your baking tin and press it down with the back of a spoon so it is all level.
  1. Pop in the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the top is a nice golden colour.
  1. Once removed from the oven, allow it to cool before removing it from the tin. Once you’ve removed it from the tin, leave the flapjack to cool completely.
  1. Break up your chocolate into small pieces and melt in the microwave. Make sure to keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t burn! You can always melt it in a bowl over some boiling water, if you’d rather be on the safe side.
  1. Once the chocolate has melted, pour or drizzle it over the top of your flapjack.
  1. Let the chocolate cool completely, then cut into squares and enjoy!
