Dry Ingredients

250g porridge oats

2 tbsp seeds (I use sunflower, pumpkin and linseed combo)

50g dried fruit (I use raisins and chopped dried apricot)

50g dessicated coconut (optional)

Wet ingredients

125g coconut oil

3 large tbsp. honey

½ tsp vanilla extract (optional)


  • Pre-heat oven to 175°C.
  • Weigh out and put each of the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
  • Gently melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over a low heat. Stir in the honey and vanilla.
  • Make a hole in the middle of dry ingredients and slowly pour in the wet ingredients mixing thoroughly as you go so that everything is well combined.
  • Pour the mixture onto a baking tray/tin (approx. 30cm X 20cm tray) lined with parchment paper and smooth out flat with the back of a spoon.
  • Place tray in the centre of oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until a light golden brown.
  • Remove and allow to cool in tray for 30 minutes. Cut into individual bars and store in an air tight container. Enjoy 🙂
