Syrupy, fill­ing and easy to make, flap­jacks are the ideal au­tumn treat. Wrapped in grease­proof pa­per, they make an en­er­gis­ing snack on a wood­land walk. To make 12: Heat the oven to 180°C/ gas mark 4 and grease an 8in square tin. Melt 115g but­ter, ⅓ cup light brown su­gar and 3 tbsp golden syrup together in a large pan over a low heat. Re­move from the heat and stir in 2½ cups rolled oats and 1 tsp ground cin­na­mon. Grate two un­peeled eat­ing ap­ples into the mix­ture, add 2 tbsp sun­flower seeds and stir well. press evenly into the tin, smooth­ing with the back of a spoon. Bake for 35-40 mins un­til golden. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 mins, then cut into 12 pieces while still warm. Heat 3 tbsp golden syrup in a small fry­ing pan. Add 1 thinly sliced ap­ple and poach in the syrup over a medium heat for 3-4 mins. Re­move the slices with a fork and place on top of the flap­jacks.
