I made this, it was a complete hit with my son who is a professional athlete, but went on to adapt it by turning it in to a flap jack with chocolate on top for my younger children.

This is a delicious recipe and easily adapted to your own likes and dislikes. First time I made it I missed out the apricots and just added a little more of the dried fruits. The second time I added pecan nuts at stage 1 after I had stirred in the honey mixture and baked them in the oven along with the oats etc. The recipe suggests serving with greek yoghurt and raspberries, which is delicious, but it is equally tasty with cold milk poured over. A bit more expensive than your shop bought versions but well worth it for the 'deluxe' result!

A bit more effort than simply opening a shop-bought box, but well worth it. Not too sweet, a great variety of textures, particularly like the coconut.
