Maple & Pecan Flapjack

Flapjack is really simple to make yet delicious, and everyone seems to make it slightly different.  Some people like it with maple syrup, others with golden syrup; some people like it crunchy and others like it chewy.

I reckon that “plain” golden syrup based flapjack can be a bit one dimensional so decided to mix things up a little; golden syrup based with just a hint of autumnal flavour brought by the addition of maple syrup and chopped pecans.  It’s just on the border between crunchy and chewy but I love it.

Why not try it and let me know what you think?
