175g dried apricots

75g raisins

225g French Glacé Cherries

2 tbsp cider

50g soft brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

160g rolled oats

225g all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

250g butter


Preheat oven to 180c

Butter a 9-by-13-inch baking dish or foil tray bake

Coarsely chop apricots and mix with raisins, French Glacé Cherries and cider, stirring occasionally, until fruits are softened and plump, about 5 minutes.

Combine 2 tablespoons of sugar with 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and keep separate

Mix together the oats, flour, baking powder, salt, the remaining sugar, and the remaining 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon in a large bowl. Cut in the butter with a electric blender/ mixer or 2 knives until it forms crumbs

Press half of the oat mixture into the bottom of the prepared dish.

Spread the fruit filling on top, leaving a 5mm border on all sides.

Sprinkle the remaining oat mixture on top and dust with reserved sugar and cinnamon.

Bake until golden brown, for about 35 minutes. Let cool in the dish on a wire rack.

Cut into 24 bars. Bars can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
