Lovely flapjack, easy to make. Held together and just a touch of stickiness. No complaints from the taste testers it disappeared before my eyes!

Far too sweet for my liking! I would reduce the sugar drastically. They actually fell apart somewhat and I think I should have left them in a bit longer. Next time I might bind the oats with a bit of flour and maybe add soya milk or similar if too stiff. I would reduce the sugar by half at least.

I used white sugar as I hadn’t any brown sugar FYI. First time making flapjacks and they’re amazing

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:)
