This recipe is more wholesome than healthy but a great way to use up any odds and ends of dried fruit and nuts.
I used some dried apple, sultana’s, dried cherries and flaked almonds
4 tbsp clear honey or golden syrup
25g castor sugar
Pinch of sea salt
250g porridge oats
75g dried fruit of your choice
70g nuts, I used flaked almonds
1. Pre heat the oven to 190C. Grease a 20cm square baking tin and line with baking parchment.
2. Place the butter, sugar and honey in a saucepan and melt over a low heat. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
3. Spoon the mixture into the tin and firmly press into place. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.
4. Once cooked, leave to cool in the tin before cutting. The bars will last for 5 days in an airtight container.
You can use any dried fruit or nuts that you like.
Alternative sweeteners can be used.
When the granola bars are cooked, press them whilst warm to give you a nice flat and smooth top. This makes them easier to cut. Use a rolling or a potato masher!
