I love mincemeat and I love flapjack, so this seemed like the perfect combination for a tasty, gluten free Christmas treat – which is not healthy in the slightest, and I love that!
While I have made a few more healthier versions of flapjack (such as my banana and nut butter flapjack or my chocolate Bounty flapjack, not everything in this world needs to be healthy. It’s Christmas, and sometimes you just want a treat!
That’s right, I’m talking thick and gooey golden syrup, oodles of mincemeat and sweet-smelling demerara sugar, which is why I’ve cut it into small squares to avoid a sugar overdose!
These are seriously easy which is why they would be a great recipe to make with the kids – and one the whole family can enjoy.
I also included this recipe in my latest vlog, which you can see here…
I hope you like it, make sure to share your pictures if you give it a go yourself, I’d love to see them!
- 300g gluten free oats
- 150g unsalted butter
- 120g demerera sugar
- 3 tbsp golden syrup
- 1 jar mincemeat
- Preheat the oven to 175’C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Add the butter, sugar and syrup to a large pan and place on a low heat. Stir until the butter has completely melted – be patient, don’t let it start boiling!
- Take off the heat and add the oats to the mix. Stir well until fully combined.
- Place half of the oat mixture in the lined baking tray and flatten down.
- Pour the mincemeat over the top and carefully spread over the oats until fully covered.
- Pour over the rest of the oat mixture, covering the mincemeat, and flatten down.
- Bake in the middle of the oven until golden brown, approximately 25-30 mins.
- Allow to cool completely then cut into 16 squares. Serve them hot or cold – they go really well with a glass of mulled wine!
