2 Tbsp Chelsea Honey Maple Flavoured Syrup or Chelsea Maple Flavoured Syrup
190g (2¼ cups) rolled oats

100g milk chocolate, chopped into chunks
Preheat oven to 180ºC conventional or 160ºC fan forced.
Grease and line the base of a 20cm x 22cm tin.
Melt butter, sugar and syrup in a saucepan, bring gently to the boil, stirring until all sugar is dissolved and soft boil for two minutes.
Add melted butter mixture to oats, coconut and dried apricots (don’t add chocolate at this stage), mix until well combined. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then stir through chocolate, if you don't allow to cool the chocolate will melt and you'll lose those lovely chocolate chunks!
