6 oz / 170g Margarine (or butter)

6 oz / 170g Brown sugar

3 tbsp Golden syrup

9 oz / 255g oats

Chocolate (or whatever kind of sweets nuts or raisins that you want to decorate it with)


•Preheat the oven to gas mark  (180 )

•Melt the margarine, syrup and sugar together (either in a saucepan or in the microwave)

•Stir in the oats.

•Pour into a baking tin (lined with greaseproof paper / baking parchment)

•Bake for 20 minutes (have a look after 15 minutes to make sure they’re not getting overcooked. When the edges turn brown take them out)

•Let them cool in the tin before cutting into rectangles and decorating with chocolate chips. I melted some of the chocolate chips to make the mouths.

You can add extra ingredients to the mixture before you cook it too but it might make it too lumpy to be good Colin head.
