Preparation time: 25 min
Cooking time: 5 hours


  • 4
    self-raising flour
  • 1
    baking powder
  • 1/2
  • 3/4
    brown sugar
  • 250
    butter, diced
  • 2
  • 1 1/2
  • 150
    Jungle Energy Crunch Muesli Granola
  • 50
    dried cranberries



Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Mix together the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl.

Rub in the butter until breadcrumb consistency.

Beat together the eggs and buttermilk then mix into the dry ingredients.

Mix in the Jungle Energy Crunch Muesli Granola and cranberries, then press the mixture firmly into a lined square baking tin.

Bake for 1 hour or until golden and a skewer comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and slice into rusks.

Turn the oven down to 90°C.

Place the cut pieces into flat baking trays and dry in the oven with the door slightly ajar - this will take about 4 hours.

Store in an air-tight container and serve with hot tea or coffee.

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.
