1 cup water
¾ cup pitted dates
¾ cup instant oats
¼ cup chia seeds
¼ cup sunflower seeds
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
¼ cup cranberries
1 tsp cinnamon

Soak the dates in water for 30 minutes to soften.

Pre-heat the oven to 170oC. Line a 22cm square baking tray with two pieces of baking paper, one going in each direction.

Blend the oats in a blender on high until they form a fine powder. Place in a large bowl. Add 1 cup of water and the dates to the blender and blend until smooth. Add the blended dates and all the remaining ingredients to the bowl with the oat flour and mix well.

Spread the mixture into the tray and smooth with a spatula. Bake for approximately 23-25 minutes or until firm to touch. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes and then lift out using the two strips of baking paper. Transfer to a cooling rack for another 5 minutes and then slice into 12 bars.
