Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a 28x38x5cm or similar sized tin with baking parchment.
Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a medium size saucepan. Stir in the oats and partly mix. Add the strawberries and macadamia nuts, mix and turn into prepared tin. Smooth top with wet spatula.
Bake in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in tin for 2 minutes, then cut into fingers. Cool completely before removing from the tin.
Nice, but way too sweet and sticky, and that was after cooking for an extra 15 mins.
I tried them a second time and cut the syrup by half, and they were much better.
Great way to use up older strawberries, and I think other berries would work well too - 09 Jun 2012
