1 1/2 cups rolled oats (or spelt oats or use your favourite muesli)
3/4 cup plain flour (I use organic wholemeal spelt flour from Woolworths)
1 cup dried fruit – I use a mix of berries or whatever I have. Dates are a favourite.
1 cup unsalted nuts – anything you want ( chop them up or dry roast a bit if you like)
1/3 cup sesame seeds (or LSA or chia seeds etc)
1/3 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup water
2T brown sugar
50 grams butter
3-4 T of honey or golden syrup, maple syrup would work too. A combo of all of you like.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees or 160 fan forced
Grease a tin well (about 25 x 25 but whatever you have will work)
Put all dry ingredients in a bowl
Melt butter in a pan. Add water, brown sugar, honey/syrup and stir over low to medium heat until sugar dissolves.
Pour into dry ingredients and mix until all combined.
Pour into baking tin and push down – use your hands if you need. I find it easier.
Bake for around 20 mins. Check after 15. Do not overcook as will dry out.
Allow to cool completely before cutting as needs to set.
Cut however you like, bars , squares.
Store in container in fridge to keep longer. You can freeze this too.
