Used same ingredients but increased butter to 150gms and syrup to 4 tablespoons. Heat 180 (fan) and then reduced for last 10mins to 160 (fan) great flapjacks. Also put in loads of fruit and nuts.

No temperature and should be 150g butter not 50g as that little butter makes it very dry and crumbly.... not real flapjack! rubbish recipe

I was asked to a last minute BBQ and spotted this 'easy' recipe, seemed foolproof. Sadly the quantities are all wrong, far to many oats for the amount of ingredients to bind them. Need at least a 1/4 more of wet ingredients to bind the dry oats. Also stating the obvious, but no oven temperature. Should have checked ratings first or alternatively made myself from memory. Very disappointing, crumbling outcome ended up in the bin as there was no way to salvage it.

Doubled the mixture to make extra. Found the recipe to be a little dry and after baking some of the flapjacks fell apart. Will try with a little less oats next time. Tasty but very sweet - tempted to try a 'healthier' recipe.

East peasy and rather good. I added about a third of a packet of mixed fruit. I added about a tbspoon of neutral oil and used about 70gms butter, and a mix of ordinary and jumbo oats which gives good texture

For those who need the guidance, I cooked for 25mins in Fan 160 and packed the mix in a 20cm sq tin which makes a nice thick flapjack and was on the chunchie side, I guess 20min would be more chewy but I needed them to be durable for taking out on walks!
