Rated

Ingredients

1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup oil
1 whole egg
1 whole orange, juice and zest
1 1/2 cup rolled oat
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup apricots, finely chopped
1 cup seedless golden raisin
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream the honey and brown sugar. Add the oil and egg and blend. Add the juice and the rind from the orange and mix well.

Stir in the dry ingredients. Add the fruit and nuts and stir to combine.

Spread in a 9" x 9" (23 cm x 23 cm) greased pan and press to flatten.

Bake at 350°F (180+C) for 30 to 35 minutes or until lightly browned.

Score in the pan into 20 bars while still hot from the oven.

Cut when cool. Remove the bars from the pan and wrap them individually in waxed paper as they are a bit sticky.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They will keep for several weeks.
