  • 100g rolled oats
  • 100g self raising flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter/margarine
  • 40g sugar

Optional extras

  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • Large handful dried cranberries


  1. Mix together the dry ingredients

  2. Mix in the softened butter - this is easier using the same action as the creaming method

  3. Push down into the bottom of an ovenproof dish - if too sticky, coat fingertips with a little flour first

  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes

  5. Wait until fully cooled then cut and serve
