Coconut Flapjack | Autumnal Baking




I have been having a lot of fun recently scrolling through Pinterest and instagram to find and adapt some new recipes to bake this autumnal season.  Recently I've been baking a lot each week for church and for a local charity cafĂ© which has given me the chance to try different recipes each week.

I decided to combine a recipe I had for Anzac biscuits and a flapjack recipe to make a soft, gooey coconut flapjack and I thought I would share my recipe with you.




Ingredients:

90g of rolled oats
220g of light soft brown sugar
80g of desiccated coconut
110g of plain flour
110g of self-raising flour
125g of butter
2tbsp of golden syrup


Method:

1.  Preheat your oven to 180°C.  Lightly grease a deep, rectangular 23cm baking tray, and line with greaseproof paper.

2.  In a large mixing bowl combine the oats, sugar, and 65g of the coconut.

3.  Sift both the plain flour and the self-raising flour into the mixing bowl and stir into the other ingredients.

3.   Slowly melt together the butter and the golden syrup.  This can either be done in the microwave or in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.

4.  Make a well in the centre of your dry ingredients and pour in the melted butter mixture.

5.  Mix together until all the ingredients are fully combined.

6.  Press into your prepared tin and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top and rises slightly when pressed.

7.  Leave to cool and cut into desired pieces. 



This recipe works great as a tray bake or as a dessert when it's warm out the oven with ice cream, it's so good to have a recipe that can be used as both!  I'm so excited to have made a start on sharing some autumnal recipes with you.  I'm looking forward to trying some recipes soon with our home-grown apples! 

Let me know in the comments what you're looking forward to making this autumnal season, I'd love to swap recipes and ideas with you.
