Granola bars

What will this recipe make?

These are great energy bars. Goji berries are the most nutritionally dense fruit. Flaxseeds are high in Omega-3 fats and dietary fibre.

Whose recipe is this?

180g porridge oats
3 tbsp ground flax seeds
1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp goji berries
2 tbsp chopped dates
1 tbsp chopped figs
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp peanut butter (a good quality one without added salt or sugar)
1 tbsp honey (optional)

Melt the honey, coconut oil, and peanut butter together in a pan. Stir in all other ingredients and mix well to form a sticky mixture. If you find the mixture a little too sticky, you can add more oats to firm it up a little. This will make slightly crumblier bars though.
Press the mixture firmly into a greased baking tin (about 8 inches x 8 inches should be big enough).
Place the tin at the top of a hot oven (200c/gas9) for 10 – 15 minutes, until gold brown.
Allow cooling fully before cutting into bars.
