Soft, sweet and delicious – these dark chocolate flapjacks are topped off with a layer of rich chocolate to add an extra indulgence to your afternoon snack. As they are completely freezable they are perfect to batch cook.

Makes 6 generous pieces


  • 125 g unsalted butter, plus extra to grease the baking tray
  • 75 g soft light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons runny honey
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • 175 g rolled porridge oats
  • 100g good quality 70% dark chocolate

Dark Chocolate Flapjacks Ingredients


1. Preheat the oven to 150ºC/300ºF

2. Grease and line a oven proof tin (equivalent to around 20cm x 12cm for a portion of 6)

3. In a saucepan over a medium low heat add the butter, honey and sugar. Stir until the butter has melted and everything is combined.

7. Once the chocolate has hardened but not completely set, cut the flapjacks into pieces. See note 2

8. Serve & enjoy!


  1. Adjust the cooking time based on how you like your flapjacks. 40 minutes should give a medium soft flapjack – reduce if you like them really gooey or increase if you prefer them more firm
  2. Make sure you don’t leave the chocolate until it’s completely set as it’s likely to crack when you cut the flapjacks into pieces
