rolled oats (or quick oats)
bicarbonate of soda
dried apricots, chopped
white chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius (fan-forced).
Grease and line a 17X28cm rectangular baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
Combine the oats, flour, brown sugar and coconut in a bowl.
Place the butter, golden syrup and water in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring each time, until melted. Stir through the bicarb-soda.
Stir the butter mixture through the oat mixture. Allow to cool slightly.
Fold through the chopped dried apricots and chocolate chips.
Place the mixture into the tray and press down firmly.
Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
Leave in the baking tray to cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
When the slice has cooled completely, cut it into slices.
This slice can be stored at room temperature for up to 1 week (or frozen in an airtight container for up to 1 month).
