Speedy baking recipes

Who says baking can’t be quick? Half an hour is all you need to prepare or bake these delicious sweet treats, whether it's whipping up a batch of biscuits, perfecting simple pastries or no-bake bars that can be mixed and left to set while you crack on with other things.

No-bake granola bars

Perfect for those grab-and-go mornings, our no-bake granola bars are a fantastic breakfast snack to keep you going until lunch. Simply prep a batch at the start of the week and store in an airtight container to take the stress out of your morning rush.

  1. In a blender, blitz the pitted Deglet Nour dates, maple syrup and peanut butter to a paste. Tip into a bowl and stir in the granola.
  2. Press the mixture into a lined 20cm square tin. Chill for 2 hrs, or until firm. Cut into bars to serve.

Tip: You can use any granola or muesli for this recipe - granola will give a crunchy, crumbly texture (break up any big clumps before mixing together), while muesli will be more soft and chewy. Or you could try making your own homemade granola – we love this simple Berry granola recipe.
