A 5 minute recipe: chocolate oaty slices

chocolate oaty slicesHere’s a great little recipe from my good friend Helen. She brought this out at an impromptu picnic we had in Cornwall and our children (and all the adults) loved it.

The great thing is it can be made from store cupboard ingredients and it really does take five minutes. Enjoy:


100 g sugar
100 g butter
1 tbsp syrup
4 tbsp cocoa powder
175g – 200g oats


Melt the first four ingredients (everything but the oats) in a pan on a medium heat. Once all melted, turn off the heat and stir in the oats until all are coated. Press down into a baking tin and smooth over (you won’t need the whole tin so start from one side). Leave to cool and once hard, cut into pieces and store or freeze.

    My Mum used to make this for my brother, sister and I for an after school treat to fill us up. Now I’m making it for my children after school! Glad to see the recipe is still going strong. x
