These have been such a great hit with my family and friends and I’ve been asked many times by you to divulge the secret so you can now make your own.
These are a delicious healthy snack for entertaining, school lunches or a yummy morning/afternoon snack.
Ingredients (serves 32)
- 2 cups oats
- ½ cup wholemeal flour
- ¼ cup desiccated coconut
- ¼ cup sultanas
- ¼ cup dried cranberries
- ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
- ¼ cup sunflower seeds
- 2 tbsp linseeds or sesame seeds
- ¼ cup chopped walnuts
- 1/3 cup oil
- 1/3 cup honey
- ½ cup smooth peanut butter
- 1 large egg
Pre heat oven to 180 degrees and line a square baking tray (9x9inches) with grease proof paper and run lightly with oil.
In a bowl place all the dry ingredients and mix together.
Place oil, honey and peanut butter into a sauce pan – over a low heat melt together.
Pour the liquid into the dry ingredients and stir well.
Add beaten egg to the mixture and stir together.
Transfer the mixture into a greased baking tray and firmly push down into the tray with a spatula.
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Allow to cool for a few minutes in the tin and then cut into small squares.
Leave to cool completely and then remove from the tin.
Store in an air tight container.
- Swap the walnuts for hazelnuts, cashews, peanuts or any nuts you like!
- You can make these into little balls too! Take spoonfuls of the mixture and roll into balls – bake for around 8 minutes or until golden brown. Makes about 32.
