These are a million times better than those available in the supermarket, full of empty calories, sugar and fat.  This is the healthy, no-bake alternative to granola or muesli bars.  It is packed with dried fruit (natural sugar) and nuts/oats for protein and energy.

Instructions
  1. In a bowl, add the oil, agave syrup or honey, spices and salt. If you're using coconut oil, it's best to melt with the other ingredients over a low heat to fully melt the oil. Add the oats, nuts/seeds and stir well to completely coat. Finally add the the dried fruit.
  2. Line a small baking pan, I used a 8" x 8". Parchment or cling film is fine. Tip the mixture into the pan and flatten with some force, to ensure it's all packed down well and distributed. Cover the top with the lining and put in the freezer for about 30 minutes to harden.
  3. Pull the lining out of the pan and the contents should could out easily. Then cut into appropriate sized pieces - small rectangles or squares.
  4. To keep well, store in the fridge in an airtight container. They should be fine there for at least a week. If you put parchment square between each one or wrap in cling film, it will stop them sticking to each other.
Recipe Notes

Tip: If the dried fruit you are using is hard (dates and apricots in particular), then pre-soak in boiling water for about 5 minutes.  Ensure you drain well, before adding to the ingredients.

The nuts and seeds are your choice.  My one cup was made up of half  cup of chopped flaked almonds (I toasted) and half cup of unsalted peanuts.  Previously I used half cup of toasted, chopped flaked almonds, quarter cup of sunflower seeds and quarter cup of pumpkin seeds.  If you wish you can add a tablespoon or chia or poppy seeds.

The fruit content is half cup of dates and half cup of blueberries.  You could use any dried fruit, such as apricots, cherries, cranberries.
