Maple syrup flapjack carrot cake
6-9 portions



  • 250g jumbo porridge oats
  • 100g maple sugar
  • 80g grated carrots
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 125g butter, melted
  • 60ml pure Canadian maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich taste)


  • 120g icing sugar
  • 50ml pure Canadian maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich taste)


  1. Preheat your oven to 180c/350f and lightly grease a 20 x 20cm baking tray.
  2. Place the oats and sugar into a large bowl. Coarsely grate the carrots and add them along with the cinnamon.
  3. Melt the butter and pour it over the oats. Pour over the maple syrup.
  4. Mix everything well to combine and then add to the prepared tray. Use the back of a spoon to press it into the tray and create an even top. Bake for around 30 minutes or until it has gently browned.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely in the tray.
  6. Once cool, place the icing sugar and maple syrup into a bowl and whisk. Use a fork to drizzle the glaze over the flapjacks to create a pattern. Leave briefly to set and then cut into slices and 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.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

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