Best flapjack recipe ever. Chewy, moist and a good balance between butter and syrup. Added some sultanas as well. Won't use any other flapjack recipe from now on!

My only gripe would be that there was not enough mixture to completely fill the tin! Very quick, very easy and a great snack for the lunch box. A recipe a shall be doing again for sure.

After years of searching, I've finally found a great flapjack recipe. Neither too sticky nor too doughy. Better than lots of 'cheffy' recipes

Really easy and really tasty, took 5 mins to put together. :-)

So quick and easy!! The look of horror came across my families faces when I said I had made flapjack - it usually resembles a brick! But not now!! YUM!!

Flapjack has always eluded me - I can make any thing you can think of but not this - till now. This is a great recipe simple and produces lovely results. I add all sorts of things like seeds and nuts and my daughter loves it. Thank You I now have nothing I cant do.
