1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup desiccated coconut
125 g butter chopped
2 tablespoons golden syrup
2 tbs water
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
Preheat oven to 160°C/140°C fan-forced.
Grease and line a standard sized slice tray (approximately 17X28cm) with baking paper.
Combine the oats, flour, sugar and coconut in a bowl.
Place butter, syrup and 2 tablespoons cold water in a saucepan over medium heat.
Stir for 2 minutes or until butter has melted.
Stir in bicarbonate of soda.
Stir the butter mixture through the oat mixture.
Place the mixture into the tray and press down firmly.
Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
Leave in the baking tray to cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely
When the slice has cooled completely, cut it into slices.NB I cut mine as soon as it came out the oven and allowed it to cool down in the baking tray.
I spread melted chocolate over the slices, this is optional
