Ruth’s Fruity Flapjack

A friend was round the other day for a playdate & we ate some of the soft & chewy flapjacks DD1 & I had made the day before.  I was bemoaning the fact that they were so yummy, yet far too  unhealthy to have very often & she told me she had a variety of flapjack recipes, which she duly sent me.  This is the first one, I think it’s originally from this book.

They were very easy to make, & tasty (both girls loved them).  The first time I made them I used my (large) breakfast porridge oats, but they fell apart too easily, the second time I used the smaller (cheapo) oats & they were much better.
