Liz Earle's Ginger Nutty Slices

These nutty ginger slices are perfect for lunchboxes and picnics and make great snacks for sustenance on a long walk. The grated fresh ginger gives a warming kick to the sweet dates, raisins and honey.

Ingredients

50g hazelnuts, chopped 

50g almonds, chopped 

150g rolled oats 

50g raisins or dried cranberries 

2cm of fresh ginger, grated 

1 tsp ground ginger 

1 tsp cinnamon 

70g coconut oil or grass-fed butter 

5 dates (Medjool recommended), stone removed and roughly chopped 

4 tbsp honey 

30g pecans, whole

Method

Preheat oven to 190°C/375°F/ gas mark 5. Set aside a handful of chopped almonds and hazelnuts. In a large bowl combine the oats, remaining hazelnuts, almonds, raisins or dried cranberries, fresh ginger and dry spices. Using your hands, mix it all together until well combined.

Gently heat up the coconut oil and pour it into the bowl of dry ingredients, followed by the dates and honey. Mix well.

Line a 20x20cm baking tin with parchment paper, before scraping in the mixture – pressing it into the edges. Scatter with the pecans, reserved hazelnuts and almonds, then drizzle with a little honey.

Bake for approx 30-40 minutes, until golden brown around the edges.
