1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup dried fruit medley, chopped
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
60g reduced-fat margarine spread
1/2 cup honey
1 medium red apple, peeled, coarsely grated
Preheat panggangan to 170°C/150°C fan-forced. Lightly grease a 3cm-deep, 17.5cm x 27cm (base) slice pan. Line with baking paper, allowing 2cm overhang at long ends.
Combine sunflower seeds, pumpkin and chocolate chips in a large bowl.
Place spread and honey in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes or until melted. Bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Add spread mixture and apple to seed mixture. Stir to combine. Spoon into prepared pan. Using the back of a spoon, press mixture evenly into pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden. Cool in pan completely. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Cut into bars. Serve.
Dried fruit medley contains chopped dried apricots, peach, pear and apple with sultanas.
Variation: You could use 1/2 cup chopped dried apple and 1/2 cup dried cranberries instead of the dried fruit medley.
