Fruit and Nut Snack Bars
These fruit and nut snack bars are tasty, chewy and crammed full of fruits, nuts and seeds.
- 60 g plain wholemeal flour (I use fine plain wholemeal flour)
- 50 g porridge oats
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 130 g sultanas
- 60 g dried cranberries
- 120 g roughly chopped almonds
- 40 g pumpkin seeds
- 40 g desiccated coconut
- 2 large eggs , beaten
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp runny honey
Pre-heat oven to 190cFan
Line a 30cm x 20cm shallow baking tray with a sheet of tin foil. Enough tin foil so that you’ll be able to remove the contents once baked.
Put all of the flour, oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, fruit, nuts, seeds and desiccated coconut ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix everything together.
Add the beaten eggs, olive oil and runny honey and stir the mixture together ensuring that all the ingredients have an equal coating.
Spoon the mixture into the baking tray and press down with the back of a metal spoon. Ensure the baking tray is evenly covered.
Bake for 12 – 15 minutes until the mixture is firm and just golden brown and no more.
Remove from oven, allow to cool a little, and then carefully remove the slab from the tin foil onto a bread board to be cut into 12 equal sized bars.
Store in an airtight container. One batch made at the weekend should last all the way through to the next weekend!
