Honey flapjacks

    I like to know what goes into the snacks I give my children, so wherever possible I make my own. These yummy flapjacks are always a hit and you can add pretty much whatever you like to them. A great after school snack!

    Nice simple recipe and tasted nice. I forgot to grease my baking tray - do not, under any circumstances, forget to do this!  -  07 Sep 2013


    made this recipe so many times ive lost count, its really lovely, the kids (and hubby) scoff them each time i make them! its nice to know exactly what is in the kids treats, and honey is a more natural and healthier alternative to what goes into other flapjack reipes, suits us perfectly.  -  20 Aug 2013
