    Great recipe. Lovely to find a tasty flapjack without all that butter! Can&#39;t wait to start experimenting with different fruit and seeds etc! Thanks, JackBauer!

    not sure they came out as intended but a yummy mix to eat with a spoon...

    Lovely, very healthy.

    Absolutely beautiful guilt-free treat. Very easy to make.

    Yum Yum! I doubled the quantities, omitted the sugar and added, (very precise now) a dollop of honey! Great. You could add cherries, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, mixed nuts if this doesn&#39;t affect allergies and loads of, &quot;stuff&quot;. It was so nice to give my 2 free range to be cfeative in the kitchen without the need for icing sugar or coloured, jellied sweets!

    Made these today due to our banana mountain [hmm] and they are yummy *but* more like cake than flapjacks. I did double quantities if that&#39;s relevant (I refer you to the previously-mentioned banana mountain) - have I done something wrong?

    Easy to make with 2.5yrdd, I had no vanilla so swapped for caramel sauce they are lovely sticky and the banana works well. ds9mths adores them. thanks! they took exactly 25mins in my (fast) fan oven.

    I&#39;ve just made these and they were lovely. What is the texture supposed to be? I think I may have done something slightly wrong or didn&#39;t cook it for long enough as it was a bit spongy. Still absolutely yummy though.

    Yup, just 75, doesn&#39;t look like much but it works, honest. &lt;double checks&gt;

  • 01/05/09 17:30

    Is it only 75g of oats. Have not tried recipe yet nad wanted to check

  • akamilly 01/05/09 06:38

    Oh you star! I&#39;ve just found a less than ripe banana nestling in No1 d&#39;s lunch bag! Bleargh! I was going to chuck it out ... but instead she&#39;s now got it back in there again today just wrapped in the coating of flapjack! Nice one! I&#39;d never thought to add banana! thanks :)

    Did you know you can freeze ripe bananas, just wrap them in clingfilm, skin and all, and pop them in the freezer. Defrost for a bit before you use them in a recipe. Handy when you haven&#39;t got time to use those soft bananas straight away.

    I love these cereal bars, every time I have a last few browning bananas I rustle up some of these which go out with us to the park, or for a snacky breakfast if we haven't had time. I also used them as outside snacks when BLWing both my DD's as you can cut them into fingers and they hold together quite well.
