Buddy’s Flapjack Biscuits

These chewy, cakey flapjacks, as seen on Jamie Oliver's Quick and Easy Meals, couldn't be easier to bake; they require just 5 store cupboard ingredients and can be ready in under 30 minutes.

From the book


100g unsalted butter (at room temperature)
100g mixed dried fruit & nuts
100g porridge oats
100g self-raising flour
100g golden syrup

Essential kit

You will need a 20cm square baking tin.


Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Line a deep 20cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper and rub with olive oil. Pulse the butter, dried fruit and nuts, oats and flour in a food processor until the mix comes together and away from the sides, then pulse in the syrup until fully combined.

Transfer to the lined tin, flattening to the edges. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden. Remove from the oven, slice into 16 squares ready to cut, and leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes. Use the paper to lift out on to a wire rack, and leave to cool completely. Simple, easy, delicious – spread the word!
