100g butter (or margarine).

50g sugar (use brown or demerara if you have it).

2 tablespoons of honey (or golden/maple syrup).

300g of Lizi’s Original Granola.

Pinch of salt.

75g chopped apricots and 50g sultanas (optional), or add a grated apple.

150g milk chocolate chips or a roughly chopped chocolate bar.


1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

2. Put the butter, sugar and honey into a saucepan and melt.

3. Put the granola, apricots, and sultanas into a large bowl.

4. Pour the melted butter and sugar mixture onto the dry ingredients and stir well to combine.

5. Line a tin with non-stick baking paper.

6. Scrape the mixture into the tin and press down gently with the back of a spoon.

7. Put into the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes.

8. Lift carefully out of the oven and leave to cool completely in the tin.

9. Melt the chocolate in short bursts in the microwave or a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water.
