Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
    (may be replaced with butter)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 ⅓ cups oats
  • ½ cup desiccated coconut
  • ⅓ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ⅓ sesame seeds-ground
  • 2 Tbsp. linseed-ground
  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 5 chopped dates
  • ⅓ cup raisins (the dried fruits and nuts may be replaced by other varieties you may have on hand)
  • 6 dried apricots chopped
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped almonds
  • 1 small egg (helps to bind the mixture together)

Method

  • Line a baking tray with baking paper and preheat oven to 150°C
  • Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl
  • Over a low heat, melt the honey, vanilla and coconut oil together
  • Add the mixture to the dry ingredients
  • Add egg. Mix all really well until totally combined.
  • Put mixture into baking tray and flatten to about 1-2 cms. The thinner it is the crunchier it will be.
  • Place in oven for 30 minutes or until lightly browned all over
  • Place a sheet of baking paper over the slice after it has been in the oven for 15 minutes to prevent slice from over-browning
  • Leave slice in the tin until thoroughly cool and crisp
  • Cut carefully into rectangles or squares
