These bars taste great. Took them hillwalking with us as a snack. Next time I would not put in as much sesame seeds but add pumpkin and other seeds. Reduce cooking time as they do go hard!!!

Just making these for the first time as a snack to refuel post my first 10k run tomorrow. They're still in the oven but they smell amazing already!

Really easy to make, and even better when you can adapt the ingredients so easily. Perfect for the lunchbox..and makes plenty too!

I too would leave out the cinnamon, but these have great potential. Mine turned out really crumbly and fell apart when I cut them after cooling - any tips?? Should I use all honey/no sugar? Also could I have made them too thin? Spread them into a normal tin.

Really nice recipe. Change the fruit, add dried strawberries, raisins, dried pineapple etc., anything goes as long as you don't change the wet ingredients to oats ratio. I added some coconut chips (ordered off the internet) but do watch them during the toasting process though as they burn easily. Also... toast the sesame seeds separately in a pan which gives them the characteristic nutty taste, they get lost in the mix otherwise and stay pale and sad! Saiga... make sure you press the mix really firmly into the pan with the back of a spoon and that should stop the bars falling apart, overcooking can also make them brittle. Yum

Made these for the first time with my 5 year old. Did half cranberry/half dried strawberry mix and used some pumpkin seeds in the seed mix. They're great - good taste with a lovely crunchy texture & have held together well (my big worry with lots of seeds etc!). Yum yum

Excellent recipe for an energy snack to have at work that stops me reaching for the cake and biscuits! I did make one alteration, I love my chocolate, so I added 50g of dark chocolate crushed up and stirred it in to the warm mixture so it melted in. Absolutely made it for me!

These are lovely! I used a different variety of nuts and seeds but they are still delicious. I only baked mine for 25mins and I'm glad I did because they are nice and chewy :)
