This week , my sons and I have picnicked each day in forests, by great houses and today our favourite for scooting, cups of tea and gentle strolls with their friends and mine , West Dean Gardens( see post ” Recipe for a great morning”)
We have almost run out of picnic treats so in 5 minutes I whizzed up these for all to share
175g butter or dairy free PURE
175g golden syrup
175g golden caster sugar
300g porridge oats
75g plain flour
finely grated zest of a small lemon
Put the butter, syrup and sugar in a pan and gently melt to a golden liquid. Stir in rest of ingredients.
Place mix into a 20cm x20 cm lined tin
Bake for 40 minutes at 180c
Leave to cool in tin for at least 10 minutes before cutting into 16 squares or fewer if greedy!
