Method

 
Heat the oven to 160°C. Gently heat the sugar, golden syrup and butter in a pan until melted.

Stir the oats, raisins, walnuts and seeds into the pan until coated in the butter. Spoon half the oaty mix into a baking tin (approx. 23 x 23cm).

Scatter the plums and nectarines over the top, and then top with the remaining oat mix.

Pack the mix down well and smooth with the back of a metal spoon.

Bake for 35 minutes or until dark golden. Leave to cool completely before cutting into 16 bars with a sharp knife.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
