Ingredients (12 serves) :

  • 1 cup nuts and seeds of choice (I used 1/2 cup each of chopped almonds, walnuts, pistachios and sunflower seeds)

  • 1 cup GF oats (can use GF)

  • ½ cup flaked coconut toasted

  • ½ cup dried fruit of choice I used dried cranberries

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup honey

  • 100g coconut oil

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 170 °C. Line a square baking tin with baking paper.

  2. Melt coconut oil and honey together in a medium-size pot or in a medium-sized bowl in the microwave. Stir in oats, nuts, dried fruit, chia seeds, coconut, cinnamon and vanilla and mix to combine.

  3. Use the back of a spoon to firmly press mixture into lined baking tin and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown on top. When it comes out of the oven, press down on it with the back of a spoon again to make it firmer (so it doesn’t crumble apart).

  4. Leave to cool in the tin then refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours until firm, before removing and cutting into small bars. Will keep in an air-tight container for about a week.
