Flapjack Woes

flapjackI grew up in England and one of my favourite treats was a flapjack. They are moist and slightly chewy oatmeal bar thingies (great description, I know). I have tried several times to make them and no matter what I do, they just don’t turn out. I have used two different tried and true recipes and it’s just not working for me, at all. This is really disappointing and I am not sure how to remedy it. Today we woke up to more snow, not enough to play in, not even enough to look pretty. Just enough to make the sky a dull grey, so mid morning after being on the phone trying to deal with the hospital trying to overcharge me by $40,000 (long story…) I got everything out to make some flapjacks. I followed the recipe to a T and once again they flopped. Only the very top layer actually stuck together, the rest has to be eaten with a spoon as none of it stuck together at all. In the picture, it is just a very thin layer of flapjack balanced on my mug. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening and how I can fix it? I would really appreciate any help I can get as I really miss having a good flapjack.
