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
- Prepare a tin with baking parchment. Grease with a little butter.
- In a medium bowl, add the seeds, dried fruit, oats and cereal, and mix well.
- 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.
- Remove from the heat and pour the dry ingredients into the saucepan.
- Mix well until all the ingredients are coated with the syrup mix.
- Fill the baking tin with the mixture.
- Use the spatula to press the mix down evenly.
- Bake at 160 Degrees Celsius, for 20 mins, then leave to cool completely before cutting into squares or fingers.
