Apricot/Date Oat Bars

Apricot/Date Oat Bars

There is no photo for this yet due to there only remaining crumbs almost as fast as it comes out of the oven. My adult son, now a chef in Thailand just recently asked me again for the recipe (twice and a reminder)as he used to make them as a child and his rating still written in my recipe book is "Excellent - Scrumptious A +"

Apricot/Date Oat Bars

Base: 1 cup plain flour

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/3 cup sugar

4 oz melted butter

Combine and bake 15 mins at 350 degrees F

Top: 6 oz dried apricots or dates, soften in a little hot water

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup self raising flour

1 cup coconut

Mix and pour over cooked base.

Bake 20 - 25 mins at 350 degrees F

My son used to add all sorts of dried fruits, like papaya, dried pineapple and each time the recipe was slightly different which made it even more interesting.

If you want something with less butter, I have substituted half the butter with stewed apple.

Warning = Addictive
