Oatmeal Bars

12 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons golden syrup
12 cup shortening, room temperature
1 egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup self-raising flour
1 12 cups quick oatmeal, not instant
12 cup medium shredded unsweetened coconut
12 cup Rice Krispies
12 cup nuts or 12 cup raisins or 12 cup other dried fruit or 12 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350F. Line the bottom and up the sides of a sprayed 9" x 13" baking sheet or pan with parchment paper. Cream together brown sugar, golden syrup and shortening. Add egg and vanilla extract and mix well. Sift in flour, then add oatmeal and coconut. Stir well to combine. Lastly, gently fold in rice krispies and chocolate chips or other additions. Press dough gently (so as not to crush the rice krispies!) into the pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until light golden brown. Do not overbake. Carefully remove from the pan in one piece and use a pizza cutter to cut into bars or cut while in the pan (may wreck the non stick coating though! ). Cool on a wire rack.
