Cranberry & white chocolate flapjack

What a perfect combination these are; tart cranberries, creamy sweet white chocolate.

I love making flapjacks, they remind me of my childhood when I would stay at my granny’s and we’d always bake flapjacks! There’s something so homely about baking flapjacks, I think it’s a bake that reminds us all of a past time, usually being with someone whilst baking or enjoying them.

I used jumbo oats in this recipe, they are the best for flapjacks, so try to use them over rolled oats if possible.

I made this recipe to fit a 2lb loaf tin, but this recipe can easily be doubled to fit in a 20x20cm tin if preferred, I was making it small batch whilst in lockdown!
