Healthy and delicious nut butters make perfect granola, muffins and more
Great Start Granola
200g maple syrup
100g Meridian Crunchy Peanut Butter
50g unsalted butter
300g porridge oats (jumbo oats work best)
100g whole almonds
80g pumpkin seeds
200g chopped apricots
2tsp mixed spice
1. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/Gas 4. In a bowl combine the oats, almonds, seeds and spice.
2. In a small pan, over a gentle heat melt the peanut butter, butter and maple syrup together stirring to break up any clumps of peanut butter. Then drizzle it over the dry ingredients stirring well until everything is coated and starting to stick together.
3. Tip onto a large baking tray and bake for 20 mins stirring well half way through. When done, stir in the apricots while still hot and press the granola down with the back of a spoon to help it clump together as it cools. Once cool store in an airtight container for 3-4 weeks.
