Perfect recipe, nice soft flapjacks. I added 25g of dried apricots and 25g of pineapple to the mix.I just gave 3 big squeezes from the syrup bottle, and cooked them on 160c untill just golden.

Lovely recipe.
I melted the butter, sugar and syrup together and simply mixed by hands into the porridge oats.
Put into a greased and lined tin at 160 for 15 minutes and left to cool in the tin for 30 mins before cooling on a wire rack.
Quantity needs doubling to make a good amount.
Dessicated coconut and a glace cherry on top make a nice variation!

This is so yummy, it wont last 48 hours in my house. I did add some juicy raisins and that really added to it - sugar overload :D

Quick, easy and delicious! I used white sugar & black treacle (out of necessity) in place of the brown sugar/syrup & a low fat spreadable butter in place of full fat butter. Using the non-melting method as per the recipe with some trepidation, taking on board some of the earlier comments, I am very impressed and will never go back to 'melting'. I used an 18cm square cake tin & cut into 10 'fingers'. I didn't need to cool in the tin, they were soft after 20 minutes at 160 degrees & firmed on cooling. (mine were 6 propoints each or 3 on filling & healthy).

Amazing! I love this recipe, every time i make these they disappear out the cake tin in minutes! Perfect flapjacks. However when i make these i melt the butter and sugar etc in a pan then add the oats rather than putting them in a food processor.

Fantastic, so easy! I only had maple syrup but worked very well. I too worried they were very wet when taken out the oven but set after cooling. Perfect. Won't buy shop ones again!

Fool proof but only if sugar, fat and golden syrup is melted together 1st. Add oats bake and enjoy.

A brilliant recipe, I live in the Alps so cakes can be tricky to make but this was a real success, would normally swerve a flapjack recipe but this is a new favourite,

I have to echo Olly10's comment. This is the worst recipe I have followed and just cannot understand how all the others on here had a good result from it. I followed the recipe to the gram as well and mine turned out sloppy no matter how much longer I put it back in my oven for. What a waste of ingredients!

Dividing into twelve made for quite thin and finger-like flapjacks. I would personally double the mixture for my size of tray. They tasted really very nice. Could do with Gas Mark and size of tray. I carried on cooking for 25 minutes, although nicely cooked the edges were crunchy.

Sorry but this is the worst flapjack recipe I have ever tried, I followed it to the gram and it came out a sloppy mess, had to pack it bag into the tin and put back in the oven for another hour to make it look anything like a flapjack. I'll stick to my own method in future.

I just made these and they are yummy! I put a mixture of white and milk chocolate chips in and cooked for about 16 minutes in a fan oven. Great recipe, will be sure to make them again!

Delicious and ridiculously easy.

I just mixed all of the ingredients in a bowl (I melted the butter in the microwave for 20 seconds beforehand), then into my fan assisted oven for 12-13 minutes.

Next time will try chocolate drops and apple versions.

Very nice easy recipe. I added desiccated coconut to them and they were delicious! If mixture seems too dry, add an extra spoon of syrup. They were done in 13 minutes in my fan oven.
