These slices are similar to flapjacks and Anzac biscuits, more of a tray bake/cake. They are so simple and lovely hot from the oven or great when firmed up slightly with a nice cup of tea or coffee.
With the addition of flour it lightens the mixture and gives it a more cake like texture but still with a little chew to it. Delicious!
Makes 12 Slices
- 4 Cups Rolled Oats
- 2 Cups Self Raising Flour
- 2 Cups Raisins
- 250g Butter
- 4 tbsp Golden Syrup
- 1 Cup Brown Sugar
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- 18cm Square Cake Tin
Preheat the oven to 170degrees.
In a saucepan melt the butter, syrup and brown sugar until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is bubbling slightly. Take off the heat.
In a bowl, mix together the rolled oats, flour, raisins and cinnamon. Add the mixture from the saucepan and mix well until all the dry ingredients are coated.
Place the mixture into the baking tin and flatten down with the back of a metal spoon, ensuring it’s evenly spread out and pushed down firmly.
Place in the oven and bake for 10-15mins. It should rise slightly.
Allow to cool in the tray slightly and then cut into squares.
They should be crisp on top but chewy in the middle, holding their shape. Yummy!
You can do different variations too, nuts work very well as do chocolate chips. Melted chocolate is lovely on top. Give it a try!
