    • Medium sized pot, stirring spoon, baking paper and tray


    • 100 g butter or coconut oil
    • ½ cup honey
    • ½ cup chopped dried apricots
    • ½ cup sultanas or dried cranberries craisins
    • ½ cup shredded/thread coconut or desiccated coconut
    • cups fine rolled oats make sure you use fine rolled oats, not the large Jumbo rolled oats
    • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
    • 1 pinch salt


    • Preheat oven to 170 oC Line a square (18-20cm) baking tin with baking paper.
    • Melt butter/coconut oil and honey together in a medium-size pot or in a medium-sized bowl in the microwave. Stir in apricots, sultanas/cranberries, coconut, rolled oats, pumpkin seeds and salt until well combined.
    • 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).
    • Leave to cool in the tin then refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours until firm, before removing and cutting into 8 bars or 16 squares. Will keep in an air-tight container for about a week. Or can be frozen in an airtight container or snaplock bag for months.
