Base
Ingredients
 
3 cups quick oats
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup coconut
1 cup unbleached white flour
1 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon cardamon
3/4 cup oil
1/2 cup soya milk or water
1/4 cup honey or 1/2 cup brown sugar


Method
 
Mix together dry ingredients.
Place oil, soya milk and honey in a saucepan, and warm until honey is melted.
Beat with a whisk then mix into dry ingredients. If too dry, add a little more liquid.
Press half the mixture (or a little more than half) into a Glad Bake lined lamington tray.

Cool, and cut into bars.
