These chewy squares are packed with wholesome oats, seeds, nuts and dried fruit.

Makes about 28

Preparation: 15 min

Microwave: about 10 min

25 ml (5 t) golden syrup

200 ml margarine

500 ml (2 c) oats

250 ml (1 c) desiccated coconut

250 ml (1 c) cake flour

250 ml (1 c) sugar

60 ml (¼ c) mixed seeds and nuts or breakfast seed mix

125 ml (½ c) dried cranberries or chopped dates

1 Grease 4 x 10 cm square glass dishes with non-stick spray.

2 Microwave the syrup and margarine in a glass bowl for 2 minutes or until the margarine has melted. Mix the remaining ingredients and add to the syrup mixture.

3 Spoon the mixture into the prepared dishes.

4 Microwave each batch on 100 per cent power for 2-2½ minutes or until firm and

golden. Don’t overcook – the oat squares cook from the inside and will burn in the middle first.

6 Leave to cool completely, cut into squares and store in airtight containers. They’ll keep for about a month.
