Call them flapjacks or granola bars - these oaty bars are great for packed lunches, long drives or hikes. Packed with fruit, seeds and nuts, they are both filling and hits the spot when you need that sugar!
100gnuts, seeds, sultanas, dried apricots, crystallised ginger, desiccated coconut or a mixture
Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan and grease a 24x24cm baking tray.
Put butter, sugar and golden syrup in a pan and heat, stirring occasionally, until the butter has melted and sugar has dissolved. Add the oats and nuts, seeds, dried fruit, ginger or coconut. Mix well.
Transfer the oat mixture to the tray and spread to about 1cm thick. Smooth the surface with the back of a spoon. Bake in the oven for 15-16 minutes, until lightly golden around the edges, but still soft in the middle.
Leave to cool in the tin, then turn out and cut into bars.
If you're only using dried fruit (no nuts, seeds), you may choose to reduce the amount of sugar in this recipe, as the fruit will provide lots of sweetness.
