Easy oaty granola bars

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


115g butter
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.

Top tips:

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!
