These easy to make bars have a delicious, chewy centre and crisp outside. They used to be my favourite after school treat and I regularly made them for my children too.

  4. Add the butter and, with your fingertips, rub the cubed butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  5. Stir in the oats.
  6. Press three quarters of the mixture into the base of the prepared tin and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
