Here’s our quick and easy method to make delicious apple flapjacks:
Preheat your oven to 180°C/fan160°C/gas mark 4. Grease a 20cm round cake tin with spread.
Put the Pink Lady® apples and sugar into a pan, cover with the lid and gently simmer over a medium-low heat until the apples begin to soften – around 10-15 minutes.
Add the sunflower spread and golden syrup and bring to a gentle simmer again.
Gently stir in the oats and ginger to coat thoroughly.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Allow to cool before turning out and cutting into 12 wedges.
