  • 110g Unsalted Butter
  • 3 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 110g Light Soft Brown Sugar
  • 225g Oats
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Large Egg, Beaten
  • A Pinch of Salt
  • Icing Sugar to Dust
  • Ground Cinnamon, to Dust

  • It is best to use a 20cm (8”) shallow square silicone mould lightly greased.
  • Mix the butter, the Golden Syrup and the light soft brown sugar in a microwaveable bowl and microwave for 1-2 minutes until melted. Remove, stir and cool for 5 minutes then mix in the oats, baking powder, egg and salt.
  • Tip into the silicone mould, level and press with a palette knife to smooth. Microwave on high for 4-5 minutes or until no liquid remains and the mixture has dried up.
  • Remove, leave to cool for about 20 minutes and then mark into pieces. Cool completely in the mould then turn out and cut into squares with a sharp knife (be careful!) Lightly dust with the icing sugar and cinnamon and serve and ENJOY.
