Mini Microwave Flapjacks

I had a huge sugar low today and came home craving chocolate brownies, but I was too lazy to get
the mixer out and the sieve etc.... which was when I discovered Microwave Flapjack.

Now given the mess I make everytime I try to make flapjack in the oven I was scared..... but I needn't have been, it was soo easy.

4oz (100g) butter
1oz (25g) caster sugar
4 tablespoons golden syrup
7oz (200g) oats
5oz (150g) chocolate (or anything you want in the flapjacks, such as raisins, sultanas, cherries, fruit)

You can make this in one bowl then you have minimal washing up.... bonus

Melt the butter and sugar together in the microwave for a couple of minutes.
Stir in the golden syrup
Stir in the oats.
Microwave the whole mix on high for about 3 minutes. During this time the whole lot will grow in volume in the microwave.
If you have any other ingredients you want to add to the flapjacks, then stir these into the mixture now. .... warning chocolate chips do not work as they melt!
Lightly grease a baking dish.... alternatively use a silicon dish or muffin tray as it makes it so much easier to remove the cooled Flapjacks.
Spoon the flapjack mixture into the baking dish making it as thick as you want (or depending how big your dish is). Flatten the mixture down so it's neat.
Leave the flapjack to one side to set, once it's cooled you can put it in the refrigerator. Once set, cut (if required).

I used a mini-muffin silicon tray to make mine in making them perfect bite size treats.
