I made Gluten Free Flapjacks for the first time this afternoon. Easy recipe, chewy and absolutely delicious. Will take the advice of a previous reviewer and adapt the recipe with additional ingredients. Maybe sunflower or sesame seeds for a little more texture and nutty flavour. Gradually working my way through the Freee recipes. No disasters yet, although I have probably tempted fate by typing the sentence:)
