    I made this slice, following the recipe, and it turned out to be an extraordinarily sweet, sticky, oily mess. Perhaps there's an ingredient missing?  -  04 Aug 2016


    Great recipe, very easy to follow and not too many ingredients to buy! Made lovely buttery flapjacks. I put mine in the fridge overnight for extra chewy flapjacks. They were just the thing for my husband to grab as he raced out the door on the way to the train station this morning!  -  13 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    I got some apricot flapjack from a company that sent it by post, it was lovely but expensive so I was looking for one I could make myself but was as good. This certainly hit the mark. I dip it in melted chocolate too for a treat.  -  10 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
