Joanne's famous Flapjacks recipe

A flapjack in the US is a pancake but in Ireland and the UK, it’s an oat bar

At RTL, our morning tea is more than just a break - it's a time for bonding over delicious treats and great stories. Our General Manager, Joanne, often brings us homemade treats, but this time surprised us with her awesome Old Henry Bars Flapjacks, bringing a taste of her family favourite to our Road Safety Week morning tea.

Joanne's thoughtful gesture reminds us that food and stories have the power to unite us all. Our morning tea at RTL is such a cool celebration of  our team's diversity and creativity. We loved these flapjacks so much, we wanted to share the recipe with all of you :)

'Some of the team sked me to share so please see below – my boys prefer them without the peanut butter and nuts so that’s what I usually make.  I also use a full bar of 72% Whittaker’s Dark Ghana to coat… A flapjack in the US is a pancake but in Ireland and the UK, it’s an oat bar. This time around I was asked to make them with protein powder and stevia to make them healthier – 65g of vanilla protein powder & 135g stevia.  We’ll see what the feedback is like…', from Joanne. 

340g oats
225g light brown sugar
225g butter, melted
4 tbsp smooth peanut butter
150g milk or dark chocolate
a handful of dry roasted peanuts (optional)
Preheat the oven to 180oC. Line a 23cm x 33cm baking tin with parchment paper.
Mix the oats, sugar and melted butter together in a bowl. Spread onto the base of the tray and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, and while still warm, spread the peanut butter over the oat base. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Spread the melted chocolate over the peanut butter. Stud with dry-roasted peanuts. Allow to cool and set in the fridge, then cut into 16 bars.

We cannot wait for the next tasty treat!
