The photo provided for this recipe looks really genuinely good. When I made them myself, they were horrifically bad! I followed the recipe to the letter, yet it all went so very wrong. It was like oats swimming in water, and it stayed swimming in water. Nothing set. I like to try a variety of recipes to find the perfect one. From what I experienced, this definitely is not the perfect flapjack recipe. I'll be returning to my original simple recipe. I don't think it helped that it was the writer of this recipe that left it the first and only 5 star rating. - 10 Dec 2012
