- 200g dates, chopped
- 100g dried apricots, chopped
- 100g raisins
- 1/2 cup boilng water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 225g butter
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup, packed brown sugar
Soak the dates, apricots and raisins in boiling water for 20-30 minutes. Drain well.
Preheat oven to 180 C. Grease and line a 28cm x 18cm slice pan.
Melt butter and then add vanilla.
Combine oats, seeds, flour and brown sugar in a bowl and mix in butter.
Press half the mixture into the slice pan and then cover with the fruit. Top with the remaining mixture. Pressing pieces together to seal.
Bake for 30 minutes and then allow to cool completely before cutting into pieces (I find it easier to cut after waiting a day).
