Mike's Power Bars

2½ cups cooking oats

½ cup shredded coconut

½ tsp vanilla essence

½ tsp sea salt

½ tsp ground cinnamon

½ cup chopped dried apricots

2 tbsp almond butter

100g good quality dark cooking chocolate

½ cup raw honey

Preheat oven to 160*C and line a 20 x 30cm baking tray with baking paper. Mix first six ingredients in a large bowl. Place almond butter, chocolate and honey in a heavy-based saucepan over a low heat. Stir until melted together. Pour over the dry mix and work quickly to combine. Press into baking tray and put in oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely (finishing in the fridge) before cutting into bars.
