The mornings are cold and dark and the only way to get the youngsters out of bed is to entice them with a yummy brekky!
We've got the answer: Using Barkat porridge flakes, we have rustled up a batch of chewy, gooey breakfast bars! These bars are filled with healthy nutrients, full of flavour and seriously easy to make.
Makes 12 bars (can store up to 1 week in an airtight container)
3 tbsp golden syrup
85g demerara sugar
140g Barkat porridge flakes
½ tsp ground cinnamon
50g desiccated coconut
2 tbsp linseeds, slightly crushed
1 tbsp sesame seeds
100g chopped hazelnuts
* Heat oven to 160C
* Butter a 22cm square baking tin.
* Melt the butter, syrup and sugar in a pan. Pour in the oats, cinnamon, coconut, seeds and nuts, mix and pour into tin.
* Bake for 30-35 mins. Leave to cool for 5 mins, then cut into slices and enjoy!
Once you have made this a couple of times, begin experimenting- why not add a handful of chocolate chips or some raisins? Let us know your creations!
