  • 1 1/2 cups quick oats (140g)
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ (60g)
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut (25g)
  • 1/3 cup finely diced apricots (75g)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 125g coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup honey (80ml)
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar (60g)


  1. Grease and line a 27.5cm x 17.5cm x 3.5cm slice pan and in a bowl add the oats, wheat germ, desiccated coconut, apricots and chia seeds and stir to combine.
  2. In a saucepan melt the coconut oil, honey and brown sugar together over a medium heat until combined, stirring while the sugar dissolves. This will take around three minutes.
