Cooking time: 30-40 mins + 8 hours left in the pan!
225g golden syrup (1/2 a tin of Lyle's in the UK)
250g dark brown soft sugar
500g porridge oats
300g figs, chopped into chunks, and to remove stalks
1. Preheat the oven to 160 C and line two 9x9 pans (or one large pan) with baking paper.
2. On a low heat melt the butter, sugar and syrup in a large pan until completely melted and mixed.
3. Add the oats and chopped figs. Stir well as the oats need to be completely covered in the syrupy mixture. I only managed to fit about 450g in before feeling that was enough (although I didn't quite have enough butter in the house so that could be why).
