    • 275g (10oz) rolled porridge oats
    • 1 banana, peeled and thinly sliced
    • 2 small plums, stoned and cut into small pieces
    • 25g (1oz) dried apricots, chopped
    • 25g (1oz) sultanas
    • 225g (8oz) spread e.g. Lighter Spreadable
    • 175g (7oz) demerara sugar
    • 75g (3oz) golden syrup


    • Mix together in a large bowl the oats, banana, plums, apricots and sultanas.

    • In a small saucepan place the butter, sugar and syrup and melt gently together over a low heat.

    • Pour the melted syrup mixture into oats and stir together until all ingredients are evenly coated.

    • Spoon into a non-stick or greased and lined tin (30 x 20 x 2 1/2 cm tin) and flatten out mixture until smoothed into all the corners of the tray.

    • Place in a hot preheated oven at 160°C (325°F, gas mark 3) for about 25-30 mins, or until the mixture is golden brown.

    • Allow to cool a little and then cut into squares while still warm. Store in an airtight container.
