Pour the mixture into your mold, making sure that the paste is 2 to 3 centimeters in thickness (the mold must be approximately 20 square centimeters if you want the mixture to have the right size and to fill it).


Bake for 30 minutes or until the top coat gets a golden look. Cut the flapjacks into squares and leave to cool. When they're cold you can remove them from the tin and they're ready to eat!
