I love having a stash of simple recipes for kids on hand for when the children want to do some baking. This choc chip flapjack recipe is a really great one for kids to try. It’s quick and easy to make, uses ingredients you probably have to hand (or at least available the local store) and it lets children practise lots of practical kitchen and maths skills.
