  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 300 and line a 3 x 9-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Allow the paper to extend over the sides to avoid any sticking of your bars.

  2. 2

    In a large bowl, combine oats with seeds, coconut and dried fruit and set aside. In a small saucepan on medium heat combine honey, coconut sugar, molasses, ghee, sea salt and vanilla. Stir well and allow mixture to simmer for 1 minute.

  3. 3

    Immediately pour honey mixture over oat and fruit mixture; toss gently to coat. Press mixture firmly into the prepared pan (use wet hands to avoid sticking) Bake at 300° for 30 minutes or until slightly golden brown.

  4. 4

    Allow to cool completely before removing from the pan, cut into 12 bars and enjoy! Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 7 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
