Very nice indeed, the best flapjacks I've found. Nice and squidgy texture. Used mixed seeds instead of (expensive) pistacios and a mixture of raisins and apricots. Cut them into squares while they are still a bit warm.

I substituted golden syrup and walnuts and this worked nicely. They tasted good, but the texture wasn't very flapjack-ish in my opinion. They were more stodgy in the middle rather than chewy. Will probably seek another flapjack recipe, but may make these again.

I added a bit of golden syrup as we didn't have much honey left and they were fantastic and wonderfully chewy. Loved the apricots in them.

Maybe it's just us but we thought these were really greasy - I might try them again but cut back on the butter and hope that they still hold together although not sure I want to potentially waste all the other ingredients again.

I have made these so many times and any other recipes that I have tried are nowhere near as good...........

Lovely! Seem a bit healthier using honey rather than syrup.

Very tasty indeed, think this will be my 'go to' flapjack from now on. I think I will try making a thicker layer next time as some pieces didn't hold together well. However, I don't find this a problem as they get eaten regardless!

Really nice and tasty, apricot and pistachos added texture as well. Honey meant that they were not over sweet. Plus they are quick to make too!

Replaced pistachios with desiccated coconut and was a great success :)

A great recipe for us in South of France who can't get golden syrup for our flapjacks (which all my Expat friends miss). Careful of your teeth on these though!

Very quick to make and a good result. Couldn't get pistachios so used chopped hazelnuts instead. They worked very well and were cheaper than pistachios!
