Classic, chewy and so easy to make!
You Will Need
A 20cm square baking tray
- 175g butter
- 175g golden syrup
- 175g brown sugar
- 350g porridge oats
- 1/2 lemon finely grated zest
- A pinch of ground ginger
Preheat oven to 150C.
Melt the butter in a medium pan over a low heat.
Dip a brush in butter and line the baking tray (can get a bit sticky at the end otherwise).
Add the golden syrup and sugar to the butter and heat gently.
Once the sugar is dissolved and the butter melted, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the porridge oats, lemon zest and ginger.
I also added some lemon juice to the mixture using the same 1/2 lemon used for the zest, continue stirring till blended.
Pack a mixture into the baking tray and squash down evenly.
Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
Once cooked, remove from the oven, leave to cool for 15 minutes, then turn out onto a chopping board and cut into squares.
