Really lovely recipe, but I melted the butter in a very large saucepan, added the honey and vanilla extract, combined all the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then stirred in the dry ingredients to the melted butter etc. I then pressed it into the baking tin and baked as directed. I used a mixture of seeds and dried berries and this was really delicious. I've made it several times and it's always a winner. - 19 Nov 2014
