Chewy Oat and Raisin Bars

cook 30 mins
  • 200 g (7 oz) butter
  • 75 g (3 oz) golden syrup or clear honey
  • 150 g (5 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 125 g (4 oz) granulated sugar
  • 325 g (11 oz) rolled oats
  • 75 g (3 oz) raisins
  • 75 g (3 oz) self-raising flour
  • Melt the butter with the golden syrup, condensed milk and sugar in a large pan set over a medium-low heat, then remove from the heat and stir in the oats, raisins and flour. Stir well.
  • Scrape the mixture into a greased and base-lined baking tin measuring about 25 x 25 cm (10 x 10 inches), with a depth of about 3.5 cm (1 1/2 inches). Bake in a preheated oven, 180˚C (350˚F), Gas Mark 4, for 15–18 minutes until pale golden in colour.
  • Remove from the oven and cool in the tin for 2–3 minutes before marking out and cutting about 16 squares or bars. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes or until cool and firm enough to handle, then transfer to a wire rack.
