The best flapjacks are gooey, chewy and, above all, easy. These fruit-filled treats are great to make with children. You will also need a 20x30cm/8x12in baking tray.

Cakes and baking


Store in an airtight container for up to three days.


Flapjacks are a relatively easy biscuit to make. The mixture can be quite sticky once cooked, so line the tin with baking parchment before filling it. Remove the cooked flapjacks from the oven and set aside in their tin to cool slightly, cut them into fingers, squares or rectangles while they’re still warm, then leave to cool and harden.
