This is a delicious recipe that makes a delicious and healthy snack. The rolled oats make it a Low-GI recipe, and it has less sugar than commerical 'energy' or 'oat' bars. I lessened the sugar to 1/4 cup sugar, and you can even lessen the butter. But try it with 50g of butter first, and modify it after you've tasted it the first time. I also added cranberries and almonds, but it's fine without it. Don't forgot to look at the note at the bottom of this recipe.
50 g butter
1/4 (or 1/2 depending on taste) cup raw sugar
1/4 cup honey
100g pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sultanas
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 weet-bix, crushed
1/2 cup self-raising flour
(+ tbsp milk if needed)
Preheat oven to 170 degrees fan-forced. Line baking square tine. Place butter, sugar and honey in saucepan and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the mixture is smooth and sugar has dissolved. Cool slightly. Meanwhile, combine pumpkin seeds, weet bix, sultanas, oats and flour. Add butter mixture and stir til combined. Smooth mixture into pan and bake for 25 minutes or until golden. Let cool in pan for 30 min. Cut into slices and serve.
This recipe takes well to variations. Experiment yourself - eg. almonds and cranberries are a nice addition or even apricots, choc-chips, sun flower seeds, dates etc. It's all up to your tastes! Sugar can be lowered accordingly and a drop of milk can be needed if it's too dry.
