Now add the honey and maple syrup, drizzling evenly over the mixture. Put in the oven for a further 20 minutes, mix again and back in for 10 further minutes. Keep an eye in the last 10 minutes that the mixture doesn’t burn, at remove earlier if needed. Remove from the over and leave to cool for 10 minutes before mixing.
