Chocolate Flapjack Recipe:

This chocolate and cherry flapjack recipe, like our Malteaser biscuit cake recipe, is a delicious sweet treat for chocolate lovers. It is really rich and satisfying yet so easy to make. I have added cherries to this recipe but they can be left out or replaced if unwanted.

You will need:

  • 350g butter (unsalted)
  • 3 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 6 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 350g sugar (made up of 175g soft brown and 175g muscovado)
  • 475g oats- I used a combination of half organic jumbo oats and half rolled oats for extra texture
  • glace cherries- about 100g, chopped into quarters


  1. Line a 17 x 28 cm tin or tray with greaseproof paper. Preheat oven to 140oC/ 2750F.
  2. In a large saucepan, on the hob, melt the syrup, butter and sugars over a low heat until combined- do not allow to boil.
  3. Stir in the cocoa powder and then add the oats and mix thoroughly.
  4. Take the pan off the heat and pour the mixture into the prepared tray.
  5. Press the mixture down gently to even it out.
  6. Cook for 20-25 minutes or until baked through but not bubbling.
  7. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
  8. Slice the flapjack to your own choice of size- they are quite rich so I recommend about 20.
