Flapjacks (UK) are a type of sweet bar dessert that can be made in less than an hour. They should not be confused with American flapjacks, which are a type of pancake or griddle cake.

See also the traditional Scottish recipe.

Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]

  • Oats may be unsuitable for people with wheat allergy or celiac disease, because oats can be contaminated with wheat during processing. If cooking for someone with one of these conditions, be sure to look for oats that are specifically marked 'gluten-free' or 'wheat-free'.
  • To make this recipe suitable for people with milk or soya allergy use a dairy free, soya free margarine.
