  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C and line 2 baking trays with nonstick baking paper. Mix together the oats, seeds and spices in a large bowl with a pinch of salt; set aside.

  2. Put the oil, golden syrup and treacle in a small pan and heat gently, stirring, to melt and combine. Pour over the oat mixture and mix well.

  3. Spread over the prepared baking trays and bake for 20 mins, stirring halfway through. Stir through the dried fruit and ginger, then leave to cool completely. These will keep in an airtight container for up to 2 months.

Tip: Use any dried fruit you have instead of cranberries – raisins, sultanas, sultanas or chopped apricots all work well. Use gluten-free oats to make it gluten-free too.
