Cereal bars make a great, energy-boosting snack, and particularly appeal to kids, who relish their crunchy consistency and biscuity taste. Try making these bars on a Sunday night and you'll have effectively made breakfast for the week ahead

Method
1.
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Line a 24cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper and set aside
Room for a little one
Greasing and lining a baking tin should be easily achievable for children over the age of 6
2.
Place a pan over a medium heat. Add the rapeseed oil and the honey, stir until the honey is hot
Tasty trivia
Rapeseed oil is an alternative to olive oil, and is widely produced in Britain. Look out for its slightly cabbage-like flavour
3.
Remove from the heat and add the oats, dried fruit, nuts and seeds, stirring well to ensure the ingredients are mixed
4.
Once mixed, make sure it's sticky enough to hold together by pressing in your hands, if not add a little more honey. Scoop the mixture into the lined baking tin, pressing down firmly
5.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges turn a golden brown colour
6.
While still warm, score into 12 individual bars. Leave the cereal bars in the tin to cool completely, then serve or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days
