I made these at school and since then have tweaked the recipe, experimented with different nuts, seeds and dried fruits.

Here are 2 examples of my favourites, however you can choose to use any combination, just keep an eye on the weights used.

You will need:

  • 100g Butter
  • 4tbsp Golden Syrup (this weighs about 100g)
  • 100g Granulated Sugar
  • 300g Oats
  • 75g Flaked Almonds
  • 75g Glace or Dried Cherries
  • 40g Mixed Seeds (I used a pack of mixed seeds that has sunflower, pumpkin, sesame and linseeds)

Or

  • 100g Butter
  • 4tbsp Golden Syrup (this weighs about 100g)
  • 100g Granulated Sugar
  • 300g Oats
  • 150g pack of Cranberry and Macadamia mix
  • 40g Mixed Seeds  (I used a pack of mixed seeds that has – sunflower, pumpkin, sesame and linseeds)

Method:

  • Grease and line a 20cm square tin or a rectangle tin of a similar volume.
  • Pre heat the oven to 170degrees
  • Melt the butter, golden syrup and sugar in a medium pan.
  • Once melted add the oats, nuts, fruit, and seeds and mix well, making sure all the oats, nuts, fruit and seeds are well coated in the melted mixture.
  • Pour or spoon this into your prepared tin and press down with the back of a spoon, I find a metal spoon easiest to use for this job.
  • Cook for 7-10mins for a soft chewy bar or 10 – 15mins for a cruncher firmer bar.
  • Allow to cool completely in the tin, turn out and cut into bars ready for eating!
