Nice taste but like other comments made, mixture doesn't bind the ingredients together well enough. Having said that, perhaps in a smaller tin and more compacted, that may work. I shall give it another go. Oh, I also cooked them on gas mark 4 for 30mins.

NOPE!!!!!! Thoroughly awful. Not enough sugar, butter and syrup to hold everything together

So glad I read comments before I put in oven. I was just thinking that it was dry, it was only searching for oven temp that in the comments re wrong amounts

Should have read the comments first! Not enough wet mixed to oat quantity, had a crumbling mess. Not a complete failure tho, used it as a crumble topping for an apple and pear crumble. Really yummy!

A nice simple recipe but no indication of the oven temperature.

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.
