    Ingredients:

    Serves: 24

    Yield:

    bars

    Units: US | Metric

    • 88.74 ml grapeseed oil or 88.74 ml other neutral oil, plus extra for brushing pan
    • 473.18 ml rolled oats
    • 118.29 ml mixed seeds, such as pumpkin, sunflower and sesame
    • 118.29 ml honey
    • 78.07 ml dark brown sugar
    • 78.07 ml maple syrup
    • 0.25 ml salt
    • 354.88 ml mixed dried fruit, such as raisins, cherries, apricots, papaya, pineapple and cranberries (at least 3 kinds, cut into small pieces if large)
    • 4.92 ml ground cardamom or 4.92 ml cinnamon

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9-inch-square baking pan with parchment paper or foil, letting a few inches hang over side of pan. Brush with oil. You can also use a 9 x 13 pan but the bars will be longer and flatter.
    2. 2
      Spread oats and seeds on another baking pan and toast in oven just until golden and fragrant, 6 to 8 minutes, shaking the pan once.
    3. 3
      In a saucepan, combine oil, honey, brown sugar, maple syrup and salt. Stir over medium heat until smooth and hot. In a mixing bowl, toss together toasted oats and seeds, dried fruit and cardamom. Pour hot sugar mixture over and stir until well combined.
    4. 4
      While mixture is warm, transfer to prepared pan, pressing into pan evenly with an offset spatula.
    5. 5
      Bake until brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer pan to a rack and let cool completely. Using the overhanging foil or paper, lift out of pan and place on a work surface. Cut into bars, about 1 1/2 inches by 3 inches.
