Maple and pecan flapjacks
16 portions


  • 300g butter, plus extra to grease
  • 150g pure Canadian maple syrup (preferably dark for its robust taste)
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 75g shelled pecans, toasted in a dry pan and chopped
  • 500g rolled oats


  • 25g white chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tbsp pure Canadian maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich taste)
  • 1 tbsp shelled pecans, toasted in a dry pan and chopped


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 140°C.
  2. 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.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the lined cake tin, level the top, pressing down slightly, then bake for 25-30 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and score 16 squares, then leave to cool completely in the tin on a wire rack.
  5. 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.
  6. Sprinkle with chopped pecans, then cut into squares to serve.

More about Maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest.

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter doesn't contain any butter, or dairy products.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree – that’s all.
