*Microwave cooking times may vary due to wattage; use the timings below as a guide.


1. Line a 20cm square baking dish with baking paper and grease with non-stick cooking spray.

2. In a large heatproof bowl, combine the peanut butter and margarine. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until a silky consistency is achieved.

3. In a plastic resealable bag, place the Kellogg's® All-Bran Flakes and lightly bash with a rolling pin to form coarse crumbs.

4. Add the crushed Kellogg's® All-Bran Flakes, coconut , honey and dried cranberries, if using, to the melted peanut butter mixture. Stir until well combined. *Chef’s Tip: Replace the dried cranberries with your favourite chopped dried fruit!

5. Transfer the mixture to the prepared dish and press the mixture down firmly.

6. Refrigerate for 1 hour until firm and set.

7. Once set, carefully remove the mixture by lifting the edges of the baking paper. Using a sharp knife, cut into 12 rectangular bars.
