Very let down by this recipe. It tastes absolutely scrummy but it ended up as just a pile of crumbs which could not, in any way, be cut into squares. I followed the recipe exactly but to no avail. I did several things in an attempt to resuscitate the flapjack but it still ended up in the bin. Very unusual for a Good Food recipe.

Really, really disappointed in this recipe. 1 star. It's easy enough to make and I followed the recipe to the letter but what came out of the oven was unsliceable; it just crumbled as soon as I tipped it out. I've managed to salvage 7 squares but hold no hope that they will remain intact when they're picked up. Which is incredibly annoying when I've baked them to take to a toddler group where there are no plates and the items taken need to be able to be held in one hand without falling all over the floor. I've got no time to re-bake them and even if I did, I don't have enough ingredients left. Despite delicious taste I will absolutely NOT be using this recipe again.

Oh, yum! This is so delicious! It is like a crumbly cake, or a soft flapjack, but who cares when the taste is so divine! I thought I was back in Sweden at xmas! My kids aged 2 and 6 also loved it.

lovely fruity crumbly flapjacks and for the first time ever, I had all the ingredients in the store cupboard. I think I baked them a little hot, as they were a bit over done, but delicious all the same. i'd definitely make them again, and am looking forward to trying lots of different added goodies.

This used the ingredients had to hand & isn't too sweet. I had mixed seeds, & used sultanas instead of apricots which worked fine. I will use the recipe again. It becomes soft in a day or two which I liked (probably due to the carrots).

The best flapjacks I have ever made! The taste was amazing. Did not need to change anything. Will double amount next time as they did not last!
