  • margarine (for greasing)

  • 225g jumbo rolled oats
  • 50g plain or chocolate rice pops
  • 85g sultanas
  • 85g dried mixed fruit (chopped small)
  • 100g agave (from the sugar aisle)
  • 100g peanut butter
  • 125g runny honey

What to do:

  1. Lightly grease your baking tray and line with cling film.
  2. Blitz the porridge oats in your food processor/blender until slightly powdery.  This is important or they won’t stick together.
  3. Pour into your mixing bowl, adding the sultanas, dried mixed fruit and rice pops.  Stir well.
  4. Heat the agave, peanut butter and honey in a pan over a medium heat until melted.  Top Tip: when measuring out the wet ingredients, use the pan as your measuring bowl to save on the mess!
  5. Pour over the oat mixture and mix with a spoon until it has cooled slightly.  Then get in there with your hands to make sure the oats and fruit are well and truly coated.  Top Tip:  lick your hands clean!
  6. Tip the mixture into the lined tray and spread evenly.  Lay another piece of cling film over the top and press down firmly
  7. Leave in the freezer for 1 hour until set.
  8. Remove from the freezer and take off the top layer of cling film.  Turn out onto a chopping board and remove the rest of the cling film.  Cut into 24 bars (or less if you want a nice big piece, which you will).

These will keep if you wrap in grease proof paper and store in a sealed container in the fridge.  They can also be kept in the freezer, but let’s be honest, they aren’t going to last that long.
