Fruity Macadamia Snack Bars

These snack bars are handy to have if you need to have breakfast on the run. They can be made wheat free by cutting out the flour and adding more oats!



45g sultanas
45g dried apricots
90g dried apples or pears
90g dried figs
50g macadamia nuts
50g sunflower seeds
60g wholemeal flour
60g porridge oats
60ml orange or apple juice
3 tablespoons honey


Place all the dried fruit in a blender and roughly chop before stirring in the seeds, nuts, oats and flour. Next, add juice and honey and roughly blend.

Place mixture in a greased shallow baking tray to cook at 190C/375F/gas 5 until golden brown – about 20 minutes. Leave to cool and then slice into bars.

The GI can be lowered further by adding more juice and less honey. For a wheat free recipe, add 100g of oats and cut out the flour.
