50g golden syrup
1tbsp clear honey
200g unsalted butter
350g rolled oats
60g soft brown sugar

150g dark brown sugar

A pinch of salt

35g shelled pistachio nuts

Preheat the oven to 150°C/Gas 2.
Grease and line a 23cm (9in) square baking tray.
To make the base, warm the syrup, honey and butter in a large pan over a low heat until blended.
Add the oats and soft brown sugar and mix well until fully combined.
Place the mixture in the baking tray and press down until the oats are tight and compressed.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the surface is lightly browned and golden but not dark.
Allow to cool in the baking tray.
Meanwhile, make the caramel topping by heating the dark brown sugar and butter in a non-stick pan and gently stirring until melted.
Add the condensed milk and bring to the boil, stirring continuously.
Add the salt and cook for 1 minute or until the caramel has thickened.
Pour the caramel over the oat base and spread lightly with a palette knife.
Whilst still warm sprinkle over the seeds, nuts and chocolate.
Allow to cool completely and cut into slices.
