270g dried fruit (e.g. apricots, figs, dates, raisins, dried apple and pears)
40g nuts (e.g. cashews)
80g seeds (e.g. pumpkin, sunflower seeds)
1 tsp cinnamon
80ml fruit juice
2 level tbls honey
60g wholemeal flour
120g rolled oats
(All ingredients organic)
Oven 190c/375f/gas mark 5
Blitz all the dried fruit in a Magimix until well chopped.Â Do the same with the nuts. Then put the dried fruit, nuts, seeds and cinnamon into a bowl. Warm the fruit juice and honey in a pan until dissolved.Â Add the flour & oats, mix well and then stir in the fruit & nuts.
Smooth the mixture into a 25 x 30 cm baking tray about 2.5cm deep â€“ I just spread onto baking parchment on a baking sheet to try and get the same thickness. Bake in the oven for 20 mins. Keep an eye on it and if you want the bars to be crunchier, bake for a little longer.
