Coconut Oaty Traybake

Sweet treat

Ingredients

125g plain four

115g rolled oats*

170g granulated sugar

85g desiccated coconut

115ml Bath Harvest Rapeseed Oil                                   Optional extras:

1 tablespoon golden syrup                                                 50g sultanas or raisins or chopped nuts

1 large egg (beaten)                                                            100g melted chocolate (topping)

 

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 170°c (160°c fan) or Gas Mark 3. Lightly grease and line a swiss-roll tin (around 30cm x 20cm).
  2. In a large bowl, add flour, oats, sugar and coconut and stir together. (If using sultanas or raisins add at this stage.)
  3. In a pan over a low heat, gently warm the golden syrup and Bath Harvest Rapeseed Oil until combined.  Pour over dry ingredients and stir.  Add beaten egg and continue to mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon.  Spread evenly into tin using back of spoon to level off.
  4. Bake in centre of oven for 20 – 25 minutes, until golden on top. Slice in tin while still warm.  Allow to cool for a further 10 minutes, then remove slices and cool completely on wire rack.
  5. If using chocolate topping: melt chocolate over a bain-marie until liquid.  Using a spoon, drizzle the chocolate over each finger (this could also be done whilst still in tin).  Store fingers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
