Flapjacks are a really tasty snack to treat your friends to. The subtle savoury mealworm flavour works really well with the oats. Here’s how you make it…


01 Break the egg into a bowl and whisk thoroughly.

02 Next, melt the butter in the saucepan.

03 Whilst the butter is melting, combine all of the other ingredients in a bowl.

04 Once the butter is melted, mix the egg and butter with all the ingredients and place in the fridge for around an hour until chilled.

05 Tip your mix out onto a baking tray, and spread evenly until it’s about half an inch thick. Next, place in an oven that has been pre-heated to 170 degrees (fan assisted). Bake for 20-30 mins, until golden brown, then leave on the side to set for around an hour.

06 Once cooled and set, chop into bite sized chunks and enjoy your mealworm flapjacks.
