The comfort of a sweet and nutty flapjack, but with the childhood memory of molasses makes for a real treat.
120 g butter or plant-based spread, plus extra for greasing
40 g blackstrap molasses
60 g unrefined sugar
50 g chopped pecans
200 g porridge oats (not rolled or jumbo)
MAKES 9 SQUARES
Preheat the air-fryer to 180°C/350°F.
Grease and line a 15 x 15-cm/6 x 6-in. baking pan.
In a large saucepan melt the butter, molasses and sugar. Once melted, stir in the pecans, then the oats. As soon as they are combined, tip the mixture into the prepared baking pan and cover with foil.
Place the foil-covered baking pan in the preheated air-fryer and air-fry for 10 minutes. Remove the foil, then cook for a further 2 minutes to brown the top. Leave to cool, then cut into 9 squares.
