    • 30 grams plain flour
    • 100 grams of butter or margarine

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Put oats and flour into a large bowl, mix together.

    It is simple enough melt n mix slice to make but the measurements are little difficult to follow using the recipe. Asuming it's in Australian measurements 200g oats = 2 cups, 75g sugar = 1/4 cup and 30mls golden syrup= 1 1/2 Tablespoons by my husbands estimations. I spread it into a 18x 28cm tin lined with greaseproof paper and the end result was a good crunchy flapjack which I cut into 12 squares.  -  03 Oct 2009

    I'd agree that this was pretty dry, and it really didn't make much with the mixture; I only got 12 smallish pieces out of it. Still, it tastes good. I added some fruit bits and a tablespoon of brandy.  -  22 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
