2 tbsp light corn syrup (can substitute with honey)
1/2 demerara or turbinado sugar
1/2 a can condensed milk
2 cups old fashioned oats
1/4 cup quick oats
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
a pinch of salt and baking soda
- Preheat oven to 325 F.
- Line a square baking pan with parchment paper.
- In a bowl combine all dry ingredients, oats, flour, dessicated coconut, baking soda and salt. Mix well.
- In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, add sugar, butter and syrup/honey.
- Constantly stir to avoid from sticking and burning at the bottom of the pan.
- Take off the heat, add condensed milk, stir until blended.
- Add all dry ingredients to the mixture. Mix well.
- Transfer mixture into lined baking tin, spread evenly, no need to press down.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
- Let cool.
- Cut into small pieces.
- You can add any of the following to the recipe:
1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup apricots
1/2 cup almonds, roughly chopped
1/2 cup macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
