These make great snacks to keep you going throughout the week.


  • Oats
  • Water

everything else is optional. Use any dried fruit, nuts and seeds you have.

Pre heat the oven to 180c

Line a flat baking tin with baking paper (parchment)

Put a cup of oats in to a bowl add half a cup of water and mix well

Chuck in whatever else you want, I made two types, one had mixed seeds and nuts with raisens and the other was dried cocconut, pineapple and bannana

Mix it all up well (I found using my hands most efficient)

Press the mix into the baking tray and bake for one hour

Remove from oven and score out portions. Allow to cool in tin for 15 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack.

I was trying to avoid sugar but a taste test towards the end of the cooking found that a little bit of sweetness was desirable so I drizzled about a desert spoon of honey over the top before putting back in the oven for 15 minutes more. You could add a couple of spoons of cane sugar during the mixing if you prefer but the honey worked just fine for me and even though they are nowhere near as sweet as shop bought bars the kids approved as well.
