Mmmm. Caramelly, buttery, toasted oats...what's not to love? I did use Lyle's golden syrup and highly recommend that for flavor. Honey would be my second choice because it's similar in consistency...corn syrup may have the same texture but it doesn't bring any flavor to the party. I added a splash of vanilla, and I cut oats back to a little over 2 1/2 cups. I wanted some chewiness in the bars. I used black raisins which worked well, but I think the bars are perfectly suited to a little more tang, and next time I make them (there will be a next time!), I'll use dried tart cherries or cranberries. And nuts would be a great addition, too. So simple and yet so tasty!
