If a mummy brownie and a daddy flapjack love each other very much…this is their offspring and it is wickedly good. Why choose between a brownie or a flapjack when you can have both?
150g/5 ¼ oz butter
150g/5 ¼ oz soft brown sugar
140g/5 oz golden syrup
325g/11 ½ oz porridge oats
100g/3 ½ oz mixed seeds
225g/8 oz caster sugar
140g/5 oz butter
60g/2 oz cocoa powder
60g/2 oz plain flour (all-purpose flour)
40g/1 ½ oz dark chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 300F/150C/Gas 2. Line a 20cm x 32cm baking tray with parchment.
Start by making the flapjacks. Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a pan over a gentle heat. Add the porridge oats and seeds. Mix together.
Then for the brownie, whisk together the eggs and sugar until they are light and fluffy. Melt the butter and whisk in the cocoa powder. Add the butter mixture to the eggs and sugar, mix and then fold in the flour and chocolate chips.
Spread the flapjack mixture on the base of the lined baking tin.
Next pour the brownie mixture over the top.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, the brownie will be slightly cracked on the top.
Cut into squares.
