And whilst we were hard grafting in the garden, Will was busy making Granola Bars.

A much needed tea break!


170g light brown soft sugar
75g golden syrup
75ml apple juice
130g unsalted butter
380g rolled oats
95g sultanas
50g dried cranberries
50g pumpkin seeds
50g sunflower seeds
6 blanched almonds (roughly chopped)

Makes 10-12 bars

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (350°C) Gas 4
Put the sugar, syrup butter and apple juice in a saucepan and gently bring to the boil.
Remove from the heat and stir in the rest of the ingredients until mixed well and coated with syrup.
Line a 20x30cm baking tray with greaseproof paper and pour the granola mix into it, spreading evenly and gently pressing down.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
Lift out the greaseproof paper and lay on a chopping board.
Cut into bars approx 1.5" thick.
Store for up to a week.
