Fruit and nut bars


    • 320 g mixed dried fruit – such as sultanas, apricots, prunes, dates
    • 160 g almonds
    • 160 g mixed seeds – such as sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, poppy seeds
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 250 ml orange juice

    How to make it

    1. In a blender, gently pulse the dried fruit until it is chopped into rough pieces.
    2. Add the salt, almonds and orange juice and pulse again. The mixture should form into a sticky ball. Gently stir in the seeds.
    3. Turn out the mixture and flatten it into a rectangle, about 1/2 cm thick. Slice into 8 bars and place them on a lined baking tray.
    4. Bake in a medium oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Make sure you turn the bars over half way through. Leave to cool on the tray, then serve.
