Sasha and Aunt Bora Bora made English-style flapjacks. These are nothing like American-style pancakes - they're more like a granola bar. I think they'll be very good on the ski slopes, although i'll probably have to add some chocolate chips to make them ski-worthy. flapjacks2

Recipe:

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup maple syrup

2 1/3 cups quick-cooking oats (not instant or old-fashioned)

Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter 8 x 8 x 2-inch metal baking pan. Combine first 3 ingredients in heavy medium saucepan. Stir constantly over medium-low heat until butter melts, sugar dissolves, and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Add oats and salt; stir until coated. Transfer mixture to prepared pan and spread out in even layer.

Bake until top is golden (edges will be darker), about 25 minutes. Cool in pan on rack 5 minutes. Cut into 4 squares; cut each into 4 triangles (mixture will still be soft). Cool completely in pan before serving.
