Fruit, nut and seed bars

breakfast bars

These are great. They’re similar to flapjacks, but because they’ve got fruit in, you can call them “breakfast bars” and say they’re healthy.

Makes 16

140g light muscovado sugar
3 tbsp golden syrup
140g butter
250 rolled oats
150g walnut pieces
150g mixed dried fruit (I used a mixed dried berries pack)
50g sesame seeds or mixed seeds

The Cooking

It’s really easy. Pre-heat the oven to 160C/320F/gas 3. Pop the butter, sugar and syrup into a pan and heat until they’re melted. Meanwhile put all the other ingredients into a large bowl. Once the sugar, syrup and butter have melted, pour it over the rest of the ingredients and mix it until everything’s coated.

Spoon the combined mixture into a square tin (about 23cm x 23cm or thereabouts) and then pat it all down so it’s compacted. Put it in the oven for 35 minutes.

Leave it to cool completely, then cut up into bars. It’s that simple!

    These sound delicious and they sound pretty easy. And as I saw in another comment would make a great breakfast or early morning snack when rushing out early in the morning.

    Качество друзей тоже надо учитывать. Дональд Трамп, например, на двадцатку потянет.

    1 п. “Не имей сто друзей, а имей сто шекелей” тоже хорошо рифмуется 🙂
    8 п. Ты никогда не потеряешь работу. Когда закончатся фотографии можно размещать рисунки (да хоть бы и конкурс объявить на лучший рисунок Одри (-:), аппликации и фотографии поделок из пластилина…
    9 п. Сто пудов ! 🙂

    Nice recipe, Do they need to be refrigerated?

    Would these hold up to 10 days of hot weather on a backpacking trip?

  10. Alex Says:

    These look great. I will have to try them with wheat flakes though. I am allergic to oats. I am sure they will be just as tasty. Thanks for the idea.

    Based on the succesful stackexchange infrastructure. The site provides a reputation management system that ensures that good answers to good questions are more visible.
    Now it’s quite empty, but with time if you’ll post in your questions and answers it can be a really great website!

    We all LOVED the taste of it! It was AWESOME!! Next time, I will make it exactly as the recipe calls for but will still double garlic. Oh, I also added about 2 tbs of greek seasoning. Also served hummus, pita bread, tzatziki, grilled zucchini. We all put tzatziki on top of chicken kebab pieces into halved pita bread and ate it to our hearts’ content. It was that delicious!! Thanks for this recipe and it’s definitely a keeper!!
