    I've been looking for a recipe that uses porridge oats and this fits the bill nicely. The squares don't look like much but, honestly, the texture and taste is amazingly good. I left them overnight in an airtight container and I reckon it's improved them. Anyway, the only change I made was that I didn't have any dark brown sugar so used light muscovado instead. Gorgeous and thanks for submitting this.  -  27 Sep 2011


    We really love these, I split the fruit quantity - half raisins, half dried apricots. Have now made several weeks in a row. They go really well in lunch boxes.  -  07 Mar 2014
