This golden crumbliness is perfect cut up into bars (or soldiers as I like to call them) and popped into school lunch boxes. I had to hide some from this batch for the kids school lunch box because I made them for an after school snack (with a little fruit and milk). If some don't get hidden then they won't make it to the next day....it's like watching a swarm of locusts attack a field. You'd think I never feed my kids.............
1 cup (90g) rolled oats
1 cup (220g) brown sugar
3/4 cup (65g) desiccated coconut
3/4 cup (110g) plain flour
1/2 cup (75g) self-raising flour
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1. Preheat your oven to 180ºC. Line your slice tin with baking paper and overhang the paper so you can lift out the slice for cutting later.
2. In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
3. In a microwave safe jug or in a small saucepan, melt the butter and golden syrup.
4. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together...combine well.
5. Press firmly into prepared slice tin. I use the back of my measuring cup to press down and compact the mixture.
6. Bake for 20-25 mins, until golden.
7. Allow to cool completely in tin (if you can wait...lol). Slice into squares or bars.
