Honey & Treacle Flapjacks

These flapjacks are so easy to make I almost feel like a cheat for putting them up on here. But seeing as my last post was about grilling a steak, I don't think that really matters anymore. These fellas are too delicious, and when I got the urge to make something tasty at 9:30 on Friday night they seemed like the perfect late-night snack. Unfortunately I went to bed before the flapjacks had cooled, but they made for a wholly unhealthy satisfying breakfast. Not all of my Friday nights are that sad, by the way.
One of the best thing about these flapjacks is that most of the stuff you need is already in the cupboard waiting to be made into flapjacks. 
200g of brown sugar, 200g of butter, 100g of honey and 100g of dark treacle. Melt together over a medium heat being careful not to let your new spatula adhere to the bottom of the saucepan.
Oddly enough both Charlie and I had chocolate left in our advent calendar after Christmas, so this seemed like a great way to finish it off. I also chopped some dried apricots and walnuts and mixed in a handful of raisins. Add all of this to about 400g of dried porridge oats and mix in your sugary, buttery deliciousness.
Press into a parchment-lined baking tray or dish. Sadly it needs to cool in the fridge before I can eat it. These are extremely difficult times. I kept myself busy by melting some chocolate to drizzle on top. Can guys say 'drizzle'?
After it's cooled in the fridge for a few hours, or overnight in my case, the flapjacks are ready to get in you. It might look a bit messy, but that is some chocolatey, oat-y goodness right there.
Cut yourself a slice, make a brew and grab a book...it really doesn't get any better.
