Sunday Baking: Home made muesli bars

I love muesli bars and they are a really easy thing to make for yourself. I found a great recipe in a magazine that I tried out today. I mucked up the proportions a little so isn't holding as well as it should but it tastes great.

100g unsalted butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup dried apricots (finely chopped)
1/3 cup dried cranberries (finely chopped)
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 180dec C. Grease and line a 18cm x 26cm slide pan.
Place butter and honey in a small saucepan; stir over medium heat until butter is melted. Bring to a boil and then turn heat down and simmer for 2 minutes.
Combine the butter/honey mix with the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well.
Press mixture firmly into the pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until brown.
Cool in pan and cut to size.

I also added a couple of chocolate chips on top too but they are an optional extra.
