Storecupboard Dinners - Cereal flapjack

Right ok, it's not exactly a 'dinner' but it is made from storecupboard leftovers, so I thought it would count  :)

You know those bits of cereals that get left at the bottom of a packet?  Bits of small stuff and dust?  Not enough to make a decent breakfast so it usually ends up getting thrown out.  Well, no more - make this instead.

Left-over Cereal Flapjack.

What you need:
  • 6 oz Butter (or Marg you can cook with)
  • 6 oz Golden Syrup
  • 6 oz Sugar (brown, white, whatever you have)
  • 12 oz Cereals, including porridge oats.
  • 2 Tablespoons of flour (any will work)

What you do:
  • Melt the butter, sugar & syrup over a low heat in a pan.
  • Meanwhile, lightly crush your left over cereals and weigh them. You need 4-8oz ish...  (I used Cheerios, Strawberry Clusters and Cornflakes).
  • Make up to 12oz with porridge oats.
  • Remove the syrup mix from the heat when melted & stir in the cereals & oats, along with 2 tablespoons of flour.
  • Mix well then pour into a greased baking tin.
  • If your tin is too large, make a tinfoil 'wall' to stop the mix spreading during baking.
  • Bake at gas 6 for 20-25 mins. Cut into pieces while still warm.
  • Pile on a plate & watch it magically disappear!
