Marmite, Chilli & Cheese Flapjacks
I’m an unapologetic Marmite fiend and if you’re a fellow lover of The Black Gold you can’t go wrong with this really easy and uber-tasty recipe.
Marmite is a really strong flavour and, rather than being overwhelmed by chilli, this just gives a warm afterglow and a tingle on the tongue but it is optional so if you’re not a chilli fan just leave it out.
It is my adaptation of this recipe to add my favourite ingredient and I think it really works well.
What is more, as it uses 2 eggs rather than masses of butter as the binding agent it’s relatively healthy too, especially if you use a reduced fat cheese.
150g grated cheese, any hard cheese works fine,
2 tablespoons marmite
150g Porridge Oats
2 fresh red chillis (optional) finely chopped including the seeds – you can add more or less according to your own heat tolerance.
- Pre-heat your oven to 180 C/ 160 C fan oven/ Gas Mark 4 and grease & line a 8 in/20 cm tin with baking parchment.
- Melt the butter, marmite and chilli gently in a pan
- Combine the porridge oats, cheese and eggs in a bowl.
- Add the melted butter & marmite mixture to the bowl and mix well.
- Pat the mix into the tin and bake for 30 – 40 minutes or until Golden Brown.
Once the Flapjack is cool, cut into slices and enjoy a taste of savoury heaven!
