Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 35 mins
60g plain flour
60g wholemeal flour
80g porridge oats
160g light brown soft sugar
110g butter, softened
397g tinned condensed sweetened milk
110g chopped walnuts
175g plain chocolate, chopped
Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas mark 4.
Lightly butter a 20x30cm baking tin, or line the bottom with greaseproof paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine both flours, oats, brown sugar and butter then mix well. The mixture should be crumbly.
Reserve 6 to 8 tablespoons of the oat mixture and press the remainder on the bottom of the prepared tin. Bake for 10 minutes.
Pour the condensed milk evenly over the baked base. Sprinkle with nuts and chocolate, then top with the reserved oat mixture and press down firmly.
Bake again until lightly browned. This should take about 25 minutes.
Cool completely before cutting into small squares or slices and enjoy!
