I've made something like this before and loved them! I added a bunch of cinnamon too, and that was really good. I call mine "granola bars", since for all my US friends, flapjacks are pancakes. Thanks for posting the recipe, I'd lost it a while ago.

Oh, I forgot, I added cinnamon too! Thank you, I will edit the recipe lol.

I didn't know that, about flapjacks being pancakes in the US. That's really interesting :)

Yeah, quite a few things have different names. Like crisps are "chips", chips are "fries", biscuits are "cookies" and what's called a biscuit there is more like a scone, etc.

I knew about the chips and fries thing, and cookies, but it took me ages to fathom what a biscuit was in the US! And of course jelly is a preserve over there, and a gelatinous dessert over here. Never heard about the flapjacks thing though, it's interesting :)

I need more recipes like this - less sugar :)

This one's lovely because it's easy, and with all the honey it still tastes wonderfully sweet and a bit naughty. Healthy (ish!) food that tastes like it should be bad for you is the best kind :)
