Being an American living in England I have a few things that I really love from England and will definitely take with me when I do eventually move back home. One of those things is Flapjacks. I love them. They make such a nice healthy snack too (Unless you put chocolate on top or in them, which I do A LOT!) Anyway here is a really good recipe. They are so easy to make!

1 cup Butter (not margarin)
1/2 cup light brown sugar
4 Tablespoons Golden Syrup or Honey
2 cups oats

Melt the butter, brown sugar and golden syrup or honey together. Add oats and pour into an 8x8" pan bake at 320 for40 - 45 minutes. Let cool for at least an hour before serving as it will be extremely hot! I sometimes melt chocolate and pour it over the top. Or alot of times I will chop up some of my favorite nuts and add them as well as some dried fruit. Berries are the best in my opinion! Plus with the fruit and nuts it is definitely more healthy. These are delish!!

I'd forgotten how much I love these. I'll have to go to the English store and pick me up some more Golden Syrup!

You have no idea how much I've been missing flapjacks all this time. Gubler and I would always get some from the bakery right by the bus station in Wigan. That's where my love for them begin, lol.
I'll have to make these this weekend. Yum. I can't wait.
