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.
