  • 5 tablespoons light brown soft sugar
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 150g (5 oz) porridge oats
  • 50g (2 oz) sultanas

Step 1

Place the butter, sugar and syrup in a microwave safe bowl and cook on high power for 1 to 2 minutes, or until butter is melted

Step 2

Stir in the oats and sultanas and mix thoroughly.

Step 3

Press mixture into a small greased baking dish. Cook on high power for about 5 minutes or until the centre is bubbling. Allow to cool then cut into squares.
