90g dried figs
50g macadamia nuts
50g sunflower seeds
60g wholemeal flour
60g porridge oats
60ml orange or apple juice

How to make:
1. Place all the dried fruit in a blender and roughly chop before stirring in the seeds, nuts, oats and flour.
2. Next, add juice and honey and roughly blend.
3. Place mixture in a greased shallow baking tray to cook at 190C/375F/gas 5 until golden brown – about 20 minutes.

The GI can be lowered further by adding more juice and less honey. For a wheat free recipe, add 100g of oats and cut out the flour.
