Not made from garden produce but makes a tasty snack to take to the allotment when you need an energy burst.


  • Ingredients
  • 10 oz (275g) oats
  • 3 oz (75g) butter
  • 3oz (75g) margarine

  3. Add honey to the pan and mix until dissolved
  4. Pour on to oat mixture and stir well
  5. Line a 9” square 2” deep oven dish with greaseproof paper
  6. Place mixture into the dish and press down with the back of a wooden spoon until it is even
  7. Bake on the bottom shelf of oven Gas mark 4 (180ºC, 350ºF) for 30 – 40 minutes or until golden brown
  8. After taking it out of the oven allow to cool before cutting into pieces. I made 16 pieces
