    Serves 24 bars
    Preparation Time: about 20 minutes
    Cooking Time: about 15 minutes

    Ingredients

    175g unsalted butter
    150g honey
    75g pear and apricot spread or prune spread
    175g raw demerara sugar
    250g organic jumbo oats
    75g pecan nut halves
    75g sultanas
    75g dried dates
    75g dried apricots
    30g pumpkin seeds
    25g sunflower seeds
    25g pistachios
    25g Good Seed
    25g linseeds
    50g ground almonds

     


    Method

    Preheat the oven to 190ºC/Gas Mark 5 and line a 23cm square baking tin with greased baking parchment.

    In a large saucepan melt the butter, then add the honey, spread and sugar and stir until they are all dissolved.

    Bring the mixture to the boil for 1–2 minutes.

    This will make the sugar caramelise to form a really sticky sauce.

    Add all the other ingredients, mix really well and pour into your cake tin.

    Pat everything down so it is nice and firm, then place in the oven for 20 minutes until the edges go golden.

    Leave to cool, tip it out and slice into bars.

    • Hi Marion. We don’t include the calorie content on the recipes as the focus of Nourish is on nutritional benefits of certain foods, rather than weight loss, as under-nourishment is more of an issue for many people when facing illness than. However, I have used an online calorie calculator and worked out a rough estimate of 260 calories each for the bars. I hope this helps.

    • Great recipe. I have most of the ingredients around. How many calories roughly per bar with your size tin and cut into 24?
