For the maple syrup flapjacks:
- 1 ¼ cups butter, plus extra to grease
- 1 ⅕ cups pure Canadian maple syrup (preferably dark for its robust taste)
- ¼ tsp tsp ground cinnamon
- ⅗ cup shelled pecans, toasted in a dry pan and chopped
- 5 ¼ cups rolled oats
For the drizzle topping:
- 25g white chocolate, chopped
- 1 tbsp + 2 tsp pure maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich taste)
- 3 tsp shelled pecans, toasted in a dry pan and chopped
- Pre-heat the oven to 140°C.
- Put the butter, maple syrup and cinnamon in a pan with a pinch of salt and stir until melted. Add the nuts and oats and stir well with a wooden spoon to coat.
- Spoon the mixture into the lined cake tin, level the top, pressing down slightly, then bake for 25-30 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and score 16 squares, then leave to cool completely in the tin on a wire rack.
- For the topping, put the chocolate and maple syrup in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water); heat until just melted, then stir and drizzle over the flapjacks.
- Sprinkle with chopped pecans, then cut into squares to serve.
