Nut-free museli bars are hard to find so you will be gald you found this scrumptious nut-free recipe - and it makes 12 'bars' or 24 'squares' .

Ingredients

  • 150g butter, melted
  • 2 tb golden syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup (200g) dried apricots, sliced
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups nut-free muesli (I love the Freedom brand, dried fruit, coconut flakes, pepitos and all good stuff in it - not too pricey - about $4.50 for a box).
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 2 tb desiccated coconut

Method

Preheat oven to 190 degrees c Into your melted (and cooled) butter, add the golden syrup and eggs.

Slice your apricots and place them in a large mixing bowl. Greased and line your slice tray (I used a 20cmx20cm tin).

Add flour, muesli and sugar to the apricots. Pour in the butter, golden syrup and egg mixture into the bowl and combine with a spoon/spatula.

Pour into your tin, and smooth into the corner. Sprinkle over the dessicated coconut.

Bake for 30-35 minutes. Allow to cool for about 30 minutes, then slice.

Place in airtight container for 5 days or up to 2 months in the freezer. The apricots make it chewy and sweet, the muesli and coconut give it some crunch.. all together delicious!
