Cranberry Flapjacks

I don't know anyone who doesn't love a decent homemade, golden, chewy but crunchy flapjack. 
I've found so many rubbish recipes that don't work, and I think the main reason is that they don't include any/enough flour. The flour is what's going to stick those chunky oats together.
These are one of those treats that last for days, but don't last for days, if you see where I'm at. 
It was such a beautiful day today in London. We spent it in Richmond Park playing Frisbee until the sun went down, it's wiped me out..time for homeland..and a flapjack. 
Melt the butter, sugar and syrup in a pan. Mix in the dry ingredients, press into a 8x12inch pan lined with parchment and bake at 170C for 25 minutes or until the top bubbles and goes a golden brown. Leave to cool completely before cutting. I even pop in fridge for an hour to get a clean cut.

250g unsalted butter
100g caster sugar
200g golden syrup
250g oats
90g SR Flour
100g dried cranberries
