Something lovely again for you this Friday, Granola Bars – a recipe pinched from a fabulous friend and I’ve only fiddled a little bit with it – honest!

Packed with seeds and fruits these are just delicious.  Please turn a blind eye to the butter and sugar and enjoy!

Ingredients:

190g butter

150g soft light brown sugar

110g golden syrup

300g rolled oats

45g cornflakes

75g dried apricots, chopped

75g dried cranberries

75g sultanas

25g pumpkin seeds

25g sunflower seeds

1 tbsp sesame seeds

Makes: 1 x 8” square tray

Preheat the oven to 160c(fan)/180c/Gas Mark 4 and line an 8” square tin with non stick baking paper.

Melt together the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a pan over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved.

In a large bowl mix together the oats and cornflakes, add in the fruits and the seeds and mix it all up.  If there are other seeds or dried fruits you prefer then just substitute them, nuts work well too.  It’s a great recipe for using up the odds and sods of packets left in the cupboard!

Pour over the mixture from the pan and stir it well until everything is well coated.

Tip it into the tin and spread and level out using the back of a fork.

Bake it in the oven for 25 minutes until lightly golden on top.

Allow to cool in the tin.  Gently mark it into bars or slices whilst it’s still a little warm and leave to cool fully.

Remove from the tin and cut completely into bars and serve.DSC01340

The perfect burst of energy you need!

    Dear Ruth, I have made these a couple of times now, the first with the amount of sugar in your recipe and them with 50 grams less sugar. They were delicious with your amont of sugar but tasted equally good with a little less sugar!

    Thanks for all your fantastic recipes!
