Apple and Raisin Flapjacks

I made flapjacks for Mad Hatters, my Mum has had so many apples on her trees and brings some down to me, some I give away to friends and others I find a use for! I think I made these the second or third week of term so I'm now really behind! As I ate out of the freezer for the week I was sick hopefully I might catch up a bit! I made this in a bit of a crazy weekend, I had some leftover chocolate and thought I'd drizzle it over the top. However, I managed to put the chocolate on before I baked them! It was fine but apparently if you're 11 the more chocolate the better so I'll try and stick to more chocolately things!!

Apple and Raisin Flapjacks
Makes 24

325g butter
220g soft brown sugar
8 tbsp golden syrup
750g oats
1 tsp powdered cinnamon
2 large apples
160g raisins

Preheat the oven to 190°C.

Melt the butter, sugar, and golden syrup in a saucepan. While the butter is melting, core the apples and chop them into small pieces.

Stir about half of the oats, and the cinnamon, into the melted butter mixture. Add the chopped apples and the raisins and mix thoroughly. Add the remaining oats and stir until all the oats are coated in butter.

Line a 25x35cm, deep-sided tray with greaseproof paper, and press the mixture into the tray, smoothing with a spatula.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until the surface is golden brown.

Allow to cool in the tray until they are set hard enough to cut, then slice up and move to a wire rack to cool.
