Chewy seedy oat and apricot bars

Ingredients

  • 300 g porridge oats

  • 100 g pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds, or a mixture of the two

  • 50 g desiccated coconut

  • 50 g plain flour

  • 200 g butter

  • 200 g golden syrup

  • 150 g soft brown sugar

  • 150 g dried apricots chopped

  • 125 g crunchy peanut butter

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method

  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 160C/325F/Gas 3.

  • 2.

    Line an 18cm/7inx28cm/11in Swiss roll tin with non-stick baking parchment, leaving a little of the parchment hanging over the edges for easy removal later.

  • 3.

    Place the oats, seeds, coconut and flour into a large bowl and mix together.

  • 4.

    Place the butter and golden syrup into a saucepan and cook until the two ingredients have melted and combined.

  • 5.

    Add the sugar, chopped apricots, peanut butter and vanilla extract to the saucepan and mix well. Then pour the mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients and mix together until the ingredients have become evenly combined.

  • 6.

    Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and press down firmly with a wooden spoon. Transfer the tin to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the mixture has become golden-brown and slightly firm. Remove the mixture from the oven and allow it to cool in the tin.

  • 7.

    Once the mixture has cooled remove it, and, still in the paper, cut it into 18 bars (or cut them to whatever size you want them to be).

  • 8.

    Store in an air-tight container for up to one week. These will also freeze well.

I can't wait to try these. Can I substitute maple syrup or honey for the corn syrup?
