Lemon and Ginger Flapjacks

May 18, 2018Sew White

With the Royal Wedding proving a great inspiration for baking. I’ve joined in for my local street party with these lemon and ginger flapjacks.

With so many delicious cakes being made I wanted to try something little different. However still as delicious and special for my local party. Any excuse to bake and at a tea party this week. I also wanted to make something special for those who were gluten free.

These are tasty! I love flapjacks for GF options but I decided to make them extra special by adding the iconic lemon and ginger flavours. I don’t think are that common in flapjacks. They taste sweet but manage to keep their lemon juicy boost. The flavours make them taste very light and they are perfect to enjoy with a cup of tea while watching the wedding on TV or at your own street party.

Royal Wedding Lemon and Ginger Flapjacks

These were such a massive hit at the street party. It was great being able to bake something for my gluten free friends that as they said “looked as good as everyone elses cakes”. The little bit of icing adding some sweet to the lemon and ginger flavours in the flapjack. There wasn’t a crumb left to enjoy at the end of the day. An important question was what is best – the crisp edge pieces or squidgy inside piece?

  • 250 g condensed milk
  • 250 g golden caster sugar
  • 3 tbsp heaped golden syrup
  • 300 g unsalted butter
  • 600 g Gluten Free oats don’t use instant porridge oats
  • zest and juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 teaspoons of ground ginger
  • 100 g icing sugar
  • a few drops of lemon juice


  • Preheat the oven to 160ºC and line 9 x 12 inch tin with greaseproof paper. It helps getting them out easily.
  • Add the butter, golden syrup, sugar and condensed milk to a saucepan. On a low heat melt together and keep stirring until all combined.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the oats, lemon zest, lemon juice and ground ginger.
  • Spoon into the tin and level off.
  • Cook for about 20 minutes until light golden brown.
  • Cut them while they are still hot and leave to cool.
  • I like a little drizzle of lemon icing on them but they taste really good without too.
  • Mix the icing sugar with a few drops of lemon juice until you get a good slightly runny consistency. Drizzle over the flapjacks and enjoy.
