I made Mincemeat Flapjacks

We’ve had mince pies recently but that left us with some mincemeat in the jar. It’s been sat in the fridge for a couple of days and I thought.. what can I do with this? I googled a recipe for mincemeat flapjacks and voila! Here we go!
The mould I used to shape them was this honeycomb oneĀ 

  • 200g mincemeat
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup
  • 300g porridge oats

It’s always fun measuring golden syrup! I did toy with the idea of using honey and adding nutmeg but I thought I’d check them out as they are to start with.
Having tasted one they could certainly be ok if you added some extra cinnamon or nutmeg!

Melt butter with syrup, add mincemeat and stir until all liquidy. Add oats. Stir. Press into lined tin – the silicon cake didn’t need lining but I did spray a little olive oil spray, not sure that was needed at all though. They popped out like a dream after about 22 minutes at 180’C.
They will take slightly longer if they’re in a flat tin. The mould I used worked really well though!

They taste very Christmasy!
