  • 3 tbsp of golden syrup
  • 175g jumbo rolled oats

  1. If using nuts chop them into medium sized pieces.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200.  Pour oil and syrup into a saucepan and gently heat them over a low heat until they melt together.
  3. Turn the heat off and then pour the rolled oats, nuts and sunflower seeds into the oil/syrup mixture.  Stir well until everything is coated.
  4. Once everything is coated in the oil/syrup mixture, tip everything onto a lined baking tray.  Place it in a pre-heated oven for 10 minutes, or until the edges turn golden and the oats start to cluster.
  5. While the oat mixture is cooking you can be chopping the pineapple pieces in half and the apricot pieces in quarters.  Break the banana chips into small pieces.  If you are using other dried fruits just make sure they are chopped into small pieces. 
  6. Mix the dried fruit and the coconut flakes in a bowl.
  7. When the oat mixture is read scoop in onto a plate to cool for a few minutes.
  8. Add the oat mixture to the bowl of dried fruit and coconut flakes and mix in.
