Fruit & Nut Bars

2 oz each of apricots, dates, figs, sultanas, sunflower seeds & hazelnuts.
4 oz porridge oats, 1-2 tbsp lemon juice, 1tbsn concentrated apple juice.
Finely chop fruit & nuts, mix all together, press into 7" x 7" tin and bake for 15 mins at 180C, cut while still warm.

This is a recipe from the Food Doctor.

Apricot and oat fingers.

7 dried apricots, plus just enough mint tea to cover them.
40g/2oz rolled oats.
50ml/2 fl oz mint tea (reserved).
30g/1oz coarsely ground mixed nuts.


Soak the apricots in enough boiling mint tea to cover them generously and leave for 3 hours til soft, or simmer very gently for half an hour.

Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas mark 4.

Lift the apricots from the tea and puree in food processor. Put the oats in a saucepan, add the pureed apricots and pour in the reserved mint tea and the nuts. Mix well and cook over a low heat for a few minutes.

Oil a baking sheet and press the mixture onto it, not too thickly, then bake for 20 minutes. If the top is not as brown as you would like, brush the top with oil and place under a hot grill for a few minutes, until a deeper colour is achieved. Cut into slim fingers and serve. This recipe serves two, and a dip of 2 tablespoons of fromage frais mixed with the flesh of a passionfruit is given as well.
