Scottish Flapjacks

I should probably confess at the outset that this recipe is not my own but has been borrowed from a family member. It is quite an unusual recipe with no golden syrup or melting involved, however the texture and flavour are just unbeatable...


  • 8 oz softened butter unsalted
  • 7 oz soft light brown sugar
  • 12 oz oats
  • 3-4 oz ground walnuts or chopped
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 180/170 fan assisted/gas mark 4.
  2. Line a rectangular baking tray.
  3. Cream together the butter and sugar.
  4. Mix through the oats and nuts.
  5. Spoon into the tray and press down to level the top.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the edges are just starting to brown.
  7. Leave to cool and cut into squares.
