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 butter
4oz sugar
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!

Yours look delicious! Lovely Blog!
Take Care and Happy Monday! Helen at The Crackled Horse x

Small world, helen, isn't it? We were at Three legged Cross for ten years before coming here, so I know the area down there very well.
