Golden Oat Slice with Chocolate Topping

My mum used to make a really yummy slice that had rolled oats, coconut and golden syrup in it and she would frost it with chocolate icing. I have searched everywhere for her recipe but cannot find it. I was telling a lady who came into my work about it and she gave me this recipe that she has been making for years and on trying it I have decided that while it is not the same as the one my mum made, it is definitely now on my favourites list. Try this and I am sure you will agree that it is a lovely tasty slice. Tell yourself that the goodness of the main ingredients, counteracts the rich chocolate topping. Thats what I do when I want to justify myself.


1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup sugar ( I used half white and half brown)
1/4 cup desiccated coconut
2 tablespoons golden syrup
125g butter
1/2 teaspoon bi-carb soda
1 tablespoon hot water
250 g dark chocolate (I use half dark and half milk)


Preheat oven to 160C. Combine the oats, flour, sugar and coconut in a large bowl. Place the golden syrup and butter in a saucepan over a low heat and stir until melted. Mix the bir-carb soda with hot water and then add to golden syrup mixture and mix to combine well. Add this to oat mixture and mix well together. Press the mixture into a greased 20cm x 30cm cake tin, lined with baking or greaseproof paper. Bake for around 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool down in the tin. Melt chocolate in small saucepan over another pan with hot water until smooth and easy to use. Do not allow any water to get into the chocolate as this will ruin it. Pour the chocolate over the slice and refrigerate until set.
