About this recipe:Moist, gooey snack that's totally portable for any time munching! Send them to school in your kids' lunch box too.
750g butter (preferably unsalted)
450g golden syrup or honey
500g soft brown sugar
1kg porridge oats
Directions Prep:20min › Cook:35min › Extra time:8hr other › Ready in:8hr55min
In a large pan, on a low heat, melt butter, sugar and syrup till runny. Mix in the oats really well, making sure none are left uncoated by the butter-sugar mix.
Pour into a 20x30cm tray lined with baking parchment. Level out the mix with a spatula. Bake in a preheated oven at 160 C for 25-35 minutes. (These should look seriously under-baked, that's the point. When they are done, if you grip the pan and give it a little wobble, it will look uncooked. This is perfect.)
Cover with a clean tea towel and leave for a whole day or overnight till completely cold. If you try and turn them out before, they will be ruined. When they are completely cold, turn them out and cut into squares. Wrapped in cling film or foil these will last a week at least. They freeze well too!
