Print Recipe


  • 240 g nut granola
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 60 g butter, unsalted
  • 50 g brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 50 g mixed seeds
  • 30 g almonds, skin on, sliced
  • 75 g dried cherries
  • vegetable oil spray

For the Vanilla Yoghurt Coating

  • 130 g Onken 0% Fat Vanilla
  • 2 tbsp butter, unsalted, melted
  • 300 g icing sugar


  • Preheat oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan/Gas 4.
  • Line a 9-inch square baking tin with baking paper and lightly spray with cooking oil.
  • Place granola on a lined baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly toasted. 
  • In a small pan, heat the honey, butter and brown sugar until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved. 
  • Set aside a tablespoon of the mixed seeds, almonds and dried cherries to decorate the tops with later. 
  • Once the ingredients in the pan have melted, add the salt and remaining mixed seeds, almonds, dried cherries and all of the toasted granola. Mix thoroughly to combine. 
  • Press the granola mixture into the baking tin, use the back of a spoon to spread it evenly to the edges. 
  • Use the set-aside seeds, cherries and almonds to decorate the top of the granola base, pressing them in firmly with the back of a spoon. Chill for two hours until set.
  • Once set, turn the contents out on to a board and cut into 8 bars. 

To make the vanilla yoghurt coating

  • Place the yoghurt into a bowl and add the melted butter, mix to combine. Add the icing sugar and whisk until you have a thick consistency. The yoghurt mixture will thicken more as it sits. 
  • Dip the bars into the yoghurt mixture to coat the underside. Turn them upside down and put the bars into the fridge for an hour to set.
