Good basic recipe; great with a few changes. I always bake a double batch in a 13x9" pan 20 minutes or til very golden. The bars are 3/4 or 7/8" thick, reminiscent of granola bars. CHANGES: Only use 3 Tbsp golden syrup (use real golden syrup for best results... Lyle's) and use 5+1/4 cups quick oats. (I substitute 1+1/4 cup regular rolled oats for more texture). I omit raisins. If you cannot find Lyles, the best substitute is 2 Tbsp light corn syrup + 1 Tbsp honey. Neither one is as good as the combination, but Lyles is best for flavor, texture, and holding together. These are a staple in my house! They will crumble if eaten before they cool completely.
