Food for Thought; Cheat’s Microwave Chocolate Flapjacks

I love a good flapjack. It’s got the whole “I’m healthy vibe” going on while in reality it’s very naughty. Plus when making them I get to lick the spoon I use in the golden syrup. Win win.

I never quite got the right consistency with baking flapjacks but these cheats microwave chocolate flapjacks are perfect. They turn out great every time and you can have flapjacks chilled and ready to eat within the hour.

4. Pour mix into a shallow, lined, bowl and chill for 20-30 minutes
