Enough talking, let’s get making!
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds & sunflower seeds mixed
- 80 grams Manuka South Manuka Blend
- 40 grams light brown sugar
- 1 tsp. water
- 40 grams coconut butter, cut into pieces
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- A pinch salt
- 1/2 cup mixed dried fruit (we liked a mixture of Goji berries and sultanas)
- 1 tbsp. Manuka South Bee Pollen Granules
- Toss oats and seeds in a bowl.
- Mix the honey, sugar and water in a bowl and melt in a pan over a gentle heat, stirring frequently to prevent the mixture caramelizing. Once it’s melted, add the vanilla extract.
- In a separate bowl or pan, melt the coconut butter.
- Turn the oven off and transfer the oats and seeds to a large bowl. Add the sugary mixture and dried fruit and mix thoroughly.
- Next, mix in the melted coconut butter.
- Place the mixture in a 20 cm x 20 cm baking tray or a 20 cm diameter quiche mold and spread it out gently. Sprinkle the top with bee pollen.
- Press down firmly with a spoon to compact the mixture and leave to cool.
- When the mixture is cool, place it in the fridge to harden.
- Once hardened cut into equal pieces.
