  • 200 g butter
  • 200 g Demerara sugar
  • 200 g honey
  • 400 g oats
  • 100 g dried fruit raisins, sultanas, apricots... anything you have lying around


Preheat your oven to 180C/160C fan.

  • Grease a 20x30cm baking tin and line with baking paper.

Melt the sugar, butter and honey in a pan.

  • Weigh the sugar into a small bowl then add to a small pan. Measure out the butter and chop it a little before you add it to the pan. Next measure out the honey and add that to the pan with the sugar and butter.
  • Melt the mixture over a low heat, stirring occasionally until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved.

Measure out the oats and fruit.

  • Weigh the oats and add them to a large bowl. Add the fruit.

Mix everything together.

  • Add the butter, sugar and honey mixture to the oats and fruit. Mix everything together with a spoon. 

Spoon into your baking tin and bake.

  • Add the mixture to your baking tin, pressing down with the back of a spoon to make sure it fills the corners and is nice and level. Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Cool in the tin before slicing. Store in an airtight container.
