Ingredients (makes eight servings)

  • 200g maple syrup
  • 100g crunchy peanut butter
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 300g porridge oats (jumbo oats work best)
  • 100g whole almonds
  • 80g pumpkin seeds
  • 200g chopped apricots
  • 2tsp mixed spice

To make

  • Heat the oven to 180˚C/gas mark 4.
  • In a bowl combine the oats, almonds, seeds and spice. In a small pan, melt the peanut butter, butter and maple syrup together over a gentle heat, stirring to break up any clumps.
  • Drizzle over the dry ingredients, stirring well until everything is coated and starting to stick together. Tip onto a large baking tray and bake for 20 minutes, stirring well halfway through.
  • When done, stir in the apricots while still hot and press the granola down with the back of a spoon to help it clump together as it cools. Once cool, store in an airtight container for no more than four weeks.
