Granola Bars

I've had half a packet of Alpen open in my cupboard for months and it's almost at it's sell by date.  I didn't want to throw it out so Googled "Recipes with Alpen" and found...................nothing.

Then I Googled Granola recipes and found one on the BBC Good Food website.  It said to use oats but I thought I would swap them for Alpen (as that's all Alpen is anyway).

It is such an easy recipe and tastes DELISH :0)

Granola Bars

100g butter, plus extra for greasing
300g of ALPEN
50g Granola cereal ( I had Quakers in the cupboard)
50g chopped nuts
3tbsp of honey (local honey made by friends of ours)
100g light brown sugar
1tsp cinnamon
100g dried cranberries, cherries, raisins (I used both raisins and cranberries)

1.      Heat oven to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3. Butter and line the base of a 18 x 25cm tin. Mix the Alpen, granola  and nuts in a roasting tin, then put in the oven for 5-10 mins to toast.

2.      Meanwhile, warm the butter, honey and sugar in a pan, stirring until butter is melted. Add the oat mix, cinnamon and dried fruit, then mix until all the oats are well coated. Tip into the tin, press down lightly, then bake for 30 mins. Cool in tin, then cut into 12 bars.
