A very versatile Australian recipe (thanks Rhiannon!) - add the fruit and nuts etc that you like. You can miss out the egg (making it more like flapjack), and use spelt or gluten free flour if you prefer.
Makes about 12-20 pieces.
125g/4 oz butter or marg
1 tablespoon syrup –generous
125g/1 cup caster sugar – or molasses sugar for a really rich flavour
100g/1 cup SR flour – or spelt with a tsp baking powder
75g/1 cup dessicated unsweetened coconut
50g/1 cup rolled oats
150g/1 cup sultanas (or any combination of dried fruit, nuts and seeds that you like)
1 egg - optional
