Ingredients – Makes 6 bars

3 tbsp Almond butter
½ cup sultanas
2 tbsp maple syrup
¾ cup oats
3 tbsp shredded coconut
2 tsp sesame seeds
3 tbsp goji berries


Using a stick blender pulse together the almond butter, maple syrup and sultanas until a nice thick paste has formed, then mix through the remaining ingredients, press into a freezerproof dish (make sure it’s well compacted) pop in the freezer for an hour or 2 and then cut into 6 squares.

* I just leave it in the freezer and take out a bar when I want one (which is all the time!)

Salmon Egg Recipe

Bank Holiday Recipe: Salmon Egg Recipe










6 crusty white rolls (poppy seed ones look lovely)
25g butter, melted
6 slices smoked salmon or gravadlax
6 medium eggs
a few snipped chives


Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Slice off the top of each roll, then gently remove the bread inside until there is a hole large enough to accommodate a slice of salmon and an egg. Arrange the rolls on a baking sheet, reserving the tops. (If you like, whizz the middles into crumbs and keep in the freezer for another recipe.)
Brush the inside and edges of the rolls with a little melted butter, then arrange a slice of salmon inside each one. Crack an egg into each and season. Bake for 10-15 mins or until the eggs are cooked to your liking. Scatter with snipped chives. Toast the tops, brush with the remaining butter, then cut into soldiers and use to dip into eggs.
