Method on how to make the energy bars:

  1. Roast the the oats, almonds and sunflower seeds in a preheated oven at 175C° for 10 minutes.
  2. Once roasted mix under with the rest of the dry ingredients. The coconut, sultanas, diced apricots and the chia seeds.
  3. Heat honey, peanut butter, vanilla extract, salt and sugar in a saucepan until liquefied.
  4. Toss the dry ingredients in with the syrup and mix until everything is coated.
  5. I used a tupperware box which is 18/15 cm and lined it with baking paper, spread the mix out evenly and compact it. It worked better when I used a second sheet of baking paper from the top. The bars got quite thick. So if you want them to be thinner you could use a larger box.
  6. The bars taste great and are never around for long. They are a good way to introduce dried fruit into the kids diets. My brother usually would never touch sultanas or dried apricots, but combined with these bars he was unstoppable.
