Ah the holidays, don’t you just love that cozy, warm, sitting-by-the-fire feeling?

Bake it for your family or with them for a fun holiday stay-at-home activity. The plus side? Once the tray is in the oven, the aromas that will fill your home will put you straight into that holiday spirit!
Preheat your oven to 140 degrees.
Peel and chop your apples into 2cm chunks and add to a pan for 15 minutes with the cinnamon and 2 tbsp of water.
Place your (pitted) dates into a blender with 4tbsp hot water and allow to soak. Once the apples are soft add these to the blender and blend until smooth.
Using the same pan melt together the peanut butter, dairy free butter, coconut oil and
honey before adding the apple mixture.
Combine the dry ingredients of oats, desiccated coconut, flaxseed and cranberries. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients on a low-to-medium heat for 5 minutes.
Grease a 20cm by 20cm baking tray with a little butter and line with baking paper. Add your mixture to the tray and press down firmly.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes and allow to cool once cooked.
