Winter Warmers #3: Posh Girl's Bakewell Flapjacks

A note from Joelle...
I thought I would name these Posh Girl's Flapjacks because these are not like the 'common' oats, butter and treacle flapjacks - oh no. These babies are scattered with tangy raspberry jam, irresistible almonds and fresh raspberries scattered over it.   'Totes amazeballs, yah?' 
Remember, only use the best ingredients you Daddy can buy!
So here's how you make it! But keep this hush-hush, though! Private baking members only! ;)
A recent picture with just fresh raspberries, dried apricots and flaked almonds

250g rolled or porridge oats
100g plain flour

150g ground almonds

100g melted (unsalted) butter

5 tbsp golden syrup

5 tbsp raspberry jam (or a whole punnet of fresh/frozen raspberries)

Sprinkle of flaked almonds

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C
2. Butter a baking tin and then set aside for later
3. Put the oats, flour and ground almonds in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.

4. Pour in the melted butter and syrup and then stir until all the oats are coated
5. Split the sticky mix into two!
6. Spoon half the mix into the baking tray and smooth over with a spoon 
7. Spread a layer of jam/blitzed raspberries on top of the mix in a nice neat fashion. Keep it roughly in the middle and do not go too far to the corners as it could spread and burn easily

8. Spread the other half of  oat mix on top and smooth down with a spoon
9. Put in the oven for around 20 mins until golden.

10. Leave it to cool in the tin for around 10 minutes - the jam will be boiling hot! 
11. Once cool and firm, cut into generous squares and serve with fresh berries or whatever you want!
