  • 300 g (10.5oz) medium oats
  • 100 g (3.5oz) pepitas pumpkin seeds
  • 75 g (3oz) walnuts broken
  • 50 g (2oz) sunflower seeds
  • pinch salt fleur de sel
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon optional
  • 2 tbsp neutral oil I use grapeseed oil or coconut oil, melted if solid
  • 5 tbsp maple syrup
  • 10 g (0.5oz) flaked/slivered almonds
  • 100 g (3.5oz) dried cranberries blueberries, or raisins
  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C (150°C fan)/340°F (Gas 3).
  2. Measure all the ingredients (except the almonds and dried fruits) in a large bowl and stir to mix them all well together.

  3. Grease a large rimmed baking tray with more oil or use a baking tray covered with baking paper (or a Silpat). Spread out the oat mixture by shaking the tray gently from side to side.
  4. Bake in the oven for about 10-15 minutes, turn over the mixture and sprinkle on the slivered almonds and bake for a further 10 minutes.

    Leave to cool then add the dried fruits.

Recipe Notes

Store in an airtight container at room temperature and enjoy within 10 days. Serve with almond milk or yogurt and fresh berries - and delicious with homemade rhubarb compote.
