Sultana, Nut and Puffed Rice Bars

Method

Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the honey, vanilla and salt and stir well to combine.

Place the puffed rice, cinnamon, berries, nuts, sultanas and coconut in a large bowl and add the honey mixture. Stir until well coated. Line the base and sides of lightly oiled slice pan (approx 26cm x 16cm) with baking paper and spoon in the warm mixture.

Place another piece of baking paper on the top of the mixture, and press down using the back of a spoon or roll a jar over the top of it until compact. Cover the pan tightly with foil and place in the freezer for about an hour or until set.

Remove from freezer and cut into 12 rectangles or squares.

Store in a sealed container in the fridge.
