Breakfast Bars

This recipe is so easily adaptable, you’ll wonder why you didn’t start making them yourself sooner.

We all have mornings where we are in a rush; perhaps the alarm didnt go off, traffic jams every where, and of course you’ll make every red light along the way!

I love breakfast, and can easily turn into the hulk if I skip it, likewise if you feed me I’ll easily be your best friend, haha!

Give this a go, even if you don’t eat them in the mornings, they go down nicely with a cuppa during your tea break 🙂


 (Pic: My own -These ones aren’t the prettiest, but it’s the taste that counts!)



Generic (I use this as the basis, and then mix it up!):

  • 50g mixed dried fruit (I used 50g of Holland & Barrett’s Very Berry Boost Mix)
  • 50g mixed seeds (for this example I used pumpkin seeds, linseeds and flax)
  • 140g oats
  • 25g cereal (I  normally use branflakes, special K or Cheerios – for this I used special K)
  • 100g butter
  • 100g light brown sugar
  • 100g golden syrup


  1. Prepare a tin with baking parchment. Grease with a little butter.
  2.  In a medium bowl, add the seeds, dried fruit, oats and cereal, and mix well.
  3. Put the butter, sugar and golden syrup in the saucepan. Cook gently on the hob, stirring with a spatula or wooden spoon, until the butter and sugar are melted.
  4. Remove from the heat and pour the dry ingredients into the saucepan.
  5. Mix well until all the ingredients are coated with the syrup mix.
  6. Fill the baking tin with the mixture.
  7. Use the spatula to press the mix down evenly.
  8. Bake at 160 Degrees Celsius, for 20 mins, then leave to cool completely before cutting into squares or fingers.
