Crumbly goodness

Happy New Year Stovies’ fans, we hope you had a good one and are almost recovered from your festive excesses. Team Stovies have certainly been feeling the waistbands straining a little more than usual!

Now that the tins of Christmas biccies have all been eaten Mr Stovies has been baking up some healthy-ish treats to refill the tins with. This is old school baking with no gadgets required.

Simple Oaty Slices:

175g Porridge oats
30g Flaked almonds (or chopped hazelnuts if you fancy)
125g Wholemeal or brown flour
1tsp Bicarbonate of soda
75g Dessicated coconut
150g Caster sugar
30ml Golden syrup
150g Butter

In a bowl mix together the oats, flour, sugar, coconut and almonds. In a large saucepan slowly melt together the butter, golden syrup and bicarb.

When the liquid starts to foam,  thoroughly mix in the dry ingredients and transfer to a greased baking tray. Bake in a medium oven (gas 4/180’c) for 15 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting into either mouth sized morsels or man sized chunks of crumbly goodness.
