The best home made flapjacks ever, I prefer to use a mixture of jumbo oats and rolled oats but all oats work perfectly except for the instant style powdered type. If you don't have golden syrup you can use honey or a mixture of light and dark corn syrup but the taste won't be quite as good. Maple syrup is too thin but you could get away with using half maple and half honey or other syrup. These are great as they are and I always come back to the original, but sometimes I'll add some chopped banana, raisins or nuts, just to ring the changes. Enjoy.
