Ingredients 6
Servings 12
Time 20


  • 100
  • 100
    brown sugar
  • 60
    golden syrup
  • 100
    pecan nuts
  • 350
    unsweetened muesli
  • 1
    medium-sized ripe banana, mashed


Butter and line the base of an 18 by 28cm (or 22cm square) baking tin with greaseproof paper. Melt the butter, sugar and syrup over a low heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Leave to cool slightly.

Chop half the pecan nuts. Tip the muesli, banana and nuts into the syrup mixture and stir well. Spoon it into the tin and press it down until it is packed firmly. Scatter the whole nuts on top and press down well. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the muesli turns a dark golden colour and the edges start to crisp.

Leave to cool in the tin and then loosen the edges with a knife. Cut into 12 bars and store it for up to five days in an airtight container.
