These cookies are often baked for Christmas in Norway, but many have the sense to enjoy them the year round. They were not part of my mother’s seven sorts baked for the holiday season, but I’ve had the good fortune to be offered them elsewhere both as a kid and as an addult. Delicious stuff I can tell you – Ted

flapjacks_post

A flapjack, muesli bar, cereal bar, or granola bar is a sweet tray-baked oat bar made from rolled oats, butter, brown sugar and golden syrup.

The item is known as a “flapjack” in the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man and Ireland and as a “muesli bar” or “cereal bar” in Australia and New Zealand. In other countries, including Canada, the United States, and South Africa, such products are referred to as “oat bars”, while the word “flapjack” is used to describe a pancake. In the UK, the term “cereal bar” is often used to describe products which contain fruits, nuts, other cereals apart from oats, and, occasionally, chocolate.

As many other traditional Norwegian bread recipes this one feature golden syrup. I know I have mentioned it several times before, but it’s important to use a golden syrupe like Lyle’s or similar and not corn syrup.

Lyle’s and similar syrups has a distinct taste that together with the kefir also used in the recipe gives the bread their particular taste – Ted
