    Default Fruit & Oat bar recipes please

    My DS was given a few of those fruit & oat bars (made by Heinz, small individually wrapped little sticky bars!) - he absolutely loves them!

    So I'm now after some successful recipe ideas if possible please. Whilst they were mainly fruit, I didn't like how they have preservatives and crap in them, so wanting to try and make my own healthier versions.

    Anyone tried this before? TIA

    These sound great. Have you tried them yourself? How long to they last in the fridge?

    This is the other recipe i tried so please yourself This one contains butter tho where as the one above doesnt which is why i wanted to try it instead

    Apricot, Orange and Poppy Seed Muesli Bars

    1 cup dried apricots
    2 tblsp honey
    Juice and rind of half an orange
    1 cup corn flakes
    1 ½ cups rolled oats½ cup sunflower seeds
    1 cup desiccated coconut
    1 tblsp poppy seeds
    25g butter, melted
    Instructions

    Grease and line a baking tray with baking paper and pre heat oven to 180 degrees.In a food processor combine apricots, honey and orange juice and process until apricots are finely chopped. Add dry ingredients and melted butter and process until well combined.* Test mix by taking a spoonful and pressing between fingers. Mix should be sticky and firm when pressed together but not too moist. Add more juice or dry ingredients as required to attain correct consistency.Dampen hands and taking tablespoonfuls of mixture, press firmly into log shapes about 5cm long. Flatten onto pre prepared baking tray about ½ - 1cm apart – mixture won’t spread or expand so you can place close together, this will also slow down cooking and ensure golden brown chewiness.Bake in pre heated oven for 10 minutes or until lightly golden. Let cool on tray for 10 minutes then place on a wire rack until completely cool. Muesli bars will store well in an airtight container in a cool place for up to one week. (If they last that long!)

    DS is only 17mths - would these be ok for him? Do they turn out really hard or a bit chewy?
