Method

  1. First make the Honey crunch granola with almonds & apricots (see 'Goes well with'). You'll need half the granola for this recipe.
  2. Heat oven to 150C/130C fan/gas 2. Arrange the rhubarb in a roasting tin just big enough to hold it all in a single layer, scatter with the sugar and cover with foil. Bake for 15-20 mins until just tender, then cool in the tin.
  3. Spoon a little rhubarb into the base of 6 glasses or pots, then top with a couple of tbsp custard. Sprinkle over some granola, then repeat the layers to fill the glasses.

Not sure these are very healthy especially for children, with 65grams of SUGAR!!! May need to adjust recipe a tad!

Great fun making this with the kids, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the end result. Looks nice too - serve in some posh glasses and it's a classy-looking dessert.
Best if you make sure your custard is nice and chilled.
