1 Heat the oven to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3.
2 Butter and line a 20cm x 20cm baking dish or tin.
3 Heat the butter, honey and sugar in a large saucepan, stirring until the butter is melted.
4 Add the granola, seeds, nuts, dried fruit and chocolate if using and stir until combined.
5 Tip into the tin and press down lightly until even, then bake for 25 mins or until golden on top.
6 Cool in tin, then cut into 12 squares. If you don’t cool it before cutting, it will be less of a bar and more of a crumble.
