Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp agave nectar
  • 140 g coconut oil
  • 110 g caster sugar
  • 115 g all purpose flour
  • 150 g rolled jumbo oats
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 150 gr dried fruits finely chopped ( I used a mix of dried apricots, pears, cranberries and prunes)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 160C/ 320F. Line a small baking tray with baking paper.
  • Add agave nectar, coconut oil and sugar into a medium saucepan and heat over a medium heat. Stir everything together until the sugar has melted and you have a syrupy consistency, then remove from the pan.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, ginger, cinnamon, oats and mixed dried fruit until combined.
  • In a small bowl mix the bicarbonate of soda with a tablespoon of hot water, stir until dissolved and add into the bowl with the dry ingredients.
  • Pour in the prepared sugar mixture and mix all the ingredients together until evenly combined.
  • Spread the mixture into the prepared baking tray, using a wooden spoon to push the mixture into the corners and flatten the top.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown on top and nicely crisp on the edges.
  • Leave in the tray until cool.
  • Once cooled, cut into slices and serve. Transfer to an airtight box and store for up to 5-7 days.
  • Enjoy!
