Zizzit's Flapjacks - dairy, wheat, soya and egg free, could be gluten free

These are wheat, egg, soya and dairy free. They could be gluten free if gluten free oats are used.

There is now a GLUTEN FREE option here

My children call my Mum "Zizzit" (long story!) and this is her recipe. These are soft, not too chewy or sickly and so easy to make. We have had them on a weekly standing order for years from her...

Do resist the urge to try and cut them before they are completely cooled or they will disintegrate.

This is a large quantity for a 12" x 8" tin, you can halve it if you like but they are very more-ish and keep for a few days.


  • 8 oz Caster Sugar
  • 12 oz Margarine (Pure Sunflower)
  • 2 tablespoons Golden Syrup
  • 1lb oats
  • *You can add raisins or other dried fruit if you like for interest and variety.*


  • Melt the sugar, syrup and margarine then stir in the oats. Line the tin and bake at 180C until golden on top, roughly 25 minutes. 
  • Leave to cool before cutting!!

Top Tips
You really DO need these to cool before cutting! Otherwise they disintegrate.
You can crumble these on top of stewed fruit for an instant crumble!
