Here’s a tasty recipe we’ve served at Eden, which features the nutritious powder of the baobab fruit – available on-site in the Eden Project Shop and online in the Eden Project Webshop.

Ingredients

  • Makes 10-12 pieces
  • 240g unsalted butter
  • 120g golden syrup
  • 90g light brown sugar
  • 30g dark brown sugar
  • 400g rolled oats
  • 120g dried apricots, chopped
  • 15g baobab powder

Method

  • Preheat your oven to 180°c / gas mark 4.
  • Melt the butter, golden syrup, sugars and vanilla essence in a pan. When melted, whisk in the baobab powder.
  • In a large mixing bowl mix all the ingredients together until combined – do not over mix.
  • Pour mixture into a lined tray and gently press down.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until lightly golden.
  • Take out of the oven, carefully and partially cut part way through into your required portions (this makes it easier to cut when cooled).
  • Serve and enjoy!
