30g (1/4 cup) non-dairy spread

2 tbsp golden syrup

160g (1-3/4 cups) rolled oats

1 medium-large banana, mashed

2 medium apples, diced


1. Preheat your oven to 160'C (350'F) and line a square baking dish.

2. Combine the non-dairy spread and golden syrup in a large heat-proof bowl and heat gently (microwave or stove top) until the spread has melted. Add the oats and mashed banana and stir thoroughly until fully combined. Add the apple pieces and stir through.

3. Transfer the mixture to your prepared dish and press down to distribute evenly. Bake for 16 to 20 minutes until just golden on top and firm to the touch. Allow to cool fully in the tray before cutting.
