Jordans Zesty Oat Squares

Jordans Zesty Oat Squares

You just never know where you'll chance upon a mighty fine recipe! I spend hours scouring the internet or zipping through cookery books for tempting treats when all I really need to do is look on some labels in my very own kitchen since today's recipe comes direct from the side of my cereal box.

I love the contrast of the chewy oats and sultanas and the crisper bite of the sunflower seeds. Add to that the zesty punch of the juice and rind of a lemon and orange and you're onto a winner, gosh darn it!

And yes, the inclusion of heathy sunflower seeds and plump, organic sultanas COMPLETELY negates any calories that may otherwise come from the margarine, brown sugar and syrup. And don't let anyone tell you any different.

The best thing about this recipe is the skill level required to produce these delectable oat squares - pretty much nil. Yup, that's just how easy it is! So no excuses, Warriors, I simply do not want to hear: "But Ginger Warrior, I can't bake!".
