Rolled Oats Wedges

P1040347

Hi Everyone!

I was feeling very low today and was in no mood to cook elaborately. I also had to make something for the kids for their evening snack for which by no means I wanted to indulge in an elaborate affair so decided to make some quick nutritive bars/wedges.

The oats wedges are perfect finger foods as they can be carried easily and look attractive too. I find them a quick energy booster.  I recently got a can of black treacle from my SIL in UK and decided to to use it in this preparation. Thanks G for sending it, looking forward to try many more recipes with it.

The Wiki explains- Treacle is any syrup made during the refining of sugarcane and is defined as "uncrystallised syrup produced in refining sugar”. Treacle is used chiefly in cooking as a form of sweetener or condiment.The most common forms of treacle are the pale syrup that is also known as golden syrup and the darker syrup that is usually referred to dark treacle.or black treacle.

These bars need very few ingredients, are completely hassle free and surely quick to make. Yes, they were perfectly apt to boost up my low mood and gladly turned out perfect. They were firm and chewy and rich with all the health benefits of Oats.

Ingredients

Recipe adapted from Catherine Atkinson

175gms Rolled Oats

50gms butter

Hi,
Lovely! But where will I get treacle here? No way. any alternative for the same?
hey, why don't you send it to Valli's kids event?

Pari said...

Nivi, treacle should be available in Mumbai. Meanwhile try golden syrup, u will not get the dark colour but will taste equally good.
