Ingredients

Pistachios

100 g

Dry rolled oats

250 g

Ground ginger

½ tsp

Ground cinnamon

1 tsp, including ½ tsp extra, to serve

Dried apricots

80 g, coarsely chopped

Banana

300 g, ripe, mashed (see tip)

Maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and line a 26cm x 16cm (base measurement) baking tin with baking paper.
  2. Place pistachio kernels on a baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden. Coarsely chop and place in a large bowl.
  3. Add oats, ginger, cinnamon, apricots, banana, maple syrup and ginger to bowl and stir to combine. Press mixture into prepared tin, using the back of a spoon to level it and making sure it reaches into the corners. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until just golden, then set aside to cool completely in tin.
