Autumn Bliss flpajacks
I made these this evening; I'm fed up with the ovepriced, overpackaged "cereal bars" type things that MrL likes for the office, so he gets this type of thing from now on. I did it by intuition, so maybe this recipe is already out there somewhere, but I made it up as I went along. Easily adaptable to any fruit you have, or you could add chocoalte chips, coconut, dried fruits, spices, etc.
4oz plain flour
4oz porridge oats
1 tbsp golden syrup
handful of fresh fruit - I used Autumn Bliss raspberries for this one
Combine butter and sugar, add flour and start to rub in butter; add in the oats and syrup,then the fruit etc, and mix thoroughly (I use my hand for this stage). Press into a suitably sized buttered tin and bake in a hottish oven until cooked through and starting to brown. Cut into fingers while warm , leave to cool in the tin, then turn out. Store in an airtight container if you don't eat them all straight away!
