Ingredients

  • 2 cup mixed nuts, such as almonds, walnuts, pecans, peanuts, hazelnuts or pistachios
  • 1 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup mixed seeds, such as pumpkin, sunflower or sesame
  • 125 gram butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/4 cup golden syrup

Method

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 23cm x 33cm baking pan (or similar) with baking paper.
  • 2
    Roughly chop the nuts (see recipe tip) and place in a large bowl along with the rolled oats and seeds.
  • 3
    Place butter, brown sugar and golden syrup in a small saucepan. Stir over a medium heat until the butter has melted. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir thoroughly.
  • 4
    Press the mixture firmly and evenly into the prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes until golden all over. Leave for a few minutes before marking into bars or squares. Cool completely before removing and slicing

Notes

  • Place the nuts in a food processor and pulse a few times to chop roughly (not too fine, you want a mixture of ground and bigger pieces). PER SERVE: Energy: 264 kcal, 1104kj Fat: 19g Saturated fat: 6g Cholesterol: 16mg, Carbohydrate: 18g, Fibre: 3g, Sodium: 52mg
