Baobab Fruit Pulp 60g

Dried Sliced Bananas 25g
Soft Apricots 55g
Light Brown Muscavado Sugar 115g
Golden Syrup or Honey 55g
Cold Pressed Organic Sunflower Oil 170ml
Makes 12 bars
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4.
Mix the baobab, oats and raisins.
Cut the almonds, apricots and bananas into raisin-sized chunks and mix into the oats, baobab and raisin mixture.
Put the sugar into a medium-sized saucepan, adding the syrup and then the oil. Set over a low heat and stir until the sugar has become much less granular. Take care not to let the oil get too hot — it just needs to be warm, as the sugar won’t amalgamate with the oil and you don’t want it to burn.
Stir in the oat mixture and tip into a 30cm x 20cm nonstick baking tray. Spread evenly and pat firmly into the tray.
Bake for 15 minutes or until pale gold.
Remove from the oven and, when it begins to firm up, cut into 12 bars.
Leave until cold, remove from the tray and place on kitchen paper to soak up excess oil before wrapping individually and storing chilled.
