 225 g oats
 150 g low fat spread / butter alternative
 150 g castor sugar
 1 tsp vanilla extract

1

Preheat the oven to 180C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

2

In a large saucepan, melt the butter over a low heat, stirring gently.

Mix in the rest of the ingredients until fully incorporated.

3

Pour the mixture out onto the baking tray and press it down firmly with a spatula, until the whole tray is evenly covered.

4

Bake for 40 minutes until the edges are crispy and the mixture has set.

Remove from the oven, leaving the flapjacks in the tray to cool.

Make sure they are completely cooled before trying to cut into them, as they may crumble apart.
