We love flapjacks and always enjoy finding new things to put in them. I found some pecans in the cupboard and thought I’d see how pecan flapjacks would turn out – and they turned out so well I thought I’d share it with you.

Simple Pecan Flapjacks

Any kind of nuts work so well in a flapjack but I love the flavour of pecans. I first tried this recipe using just whole pecans but the size of the pecans meant that it didn’t hold together. Instead, using chopped pecans and just a few full ones for decoration worked really well.

For this flapjack recipe I use golden syrup but if you love the classic maple and pecan flavour you could always use maple syrup instead. The consistency would be the same and just the flavour that would be different.

Why make flapjacks?

Flapjacks keep really well in an airtight container and are fantastic for lunchboxes or an mid-afternoon pick me up. They’re also so easy to make – from start to finish in just over half an hour and using just ingredients that most people will have at home already.
