1. Firstly mix the chia seeds with some water until they soften and turn to a frogspawn type consistency. 

2. Pit the dates and place them into a blender, along with the coconut oil if using, stewed fruit and hot water.  Blend until all combined. 

3. Place the date & apple mixture into a large bowl & add all of the other ingredients, including the chia seeds. 

4. Tip into a lined baking tray (approximately 8 inch square) and spread with the back of a spoon.  Bake in a pre heated oven at 18- degrees for 40-50 minutes, depending on the size of your tin & how deep the bars are.  The top should start to become a golden brown colour. 

5. Allow to cool, before cutting with a sharp knife into even squares.  Store the bars in an airtight container in the fridge.
