These had a caramel/brown sugar taste – they are chewy with a crispiness around the edges. I couldn’t put my finger on what they reminded me of (almost the filling of pecan pie), but they were very good!
- 1 stick light butter
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 heaped tbsp flour
- small handful pumpkin and/or sunflower seeds, optional
- 2 Tbsp flax seeds, optional
1/ Heat the oven to 350F. Line a 20 x 30 cm baking tin with greaseproof paper (parchment paper)
2/ In a large pan, heat together the butter, sugar and golden syrup over a gentle heat, stirring until the butter has melted. Tip in the flour and the oats and stir to combine.
3/ If using any of the optional seeds, stir through at this point. Tip your pan and spread evenly. Bake in the oven for roughly 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden (they will be slightly darker at the edges). Cut them, whilst still in the pan immediately.
