Method

 
Heat the oven to 160°C. Gently heat the sugar, golden syrup and butter in a pan until melted.

Stir the oats, raisins, walnuts and seeds into the pan until coated in the butter. Spoon half the oaty mix into a baking tin (approx. 23 x 23cm).

Scatter the plums and nectarines over the top, and then top with the remaining oat mix.

Pack the mix down well and smooth with the back of a metal spoon.

Bake for 35 minutes or until dark golden. Leave to cool completely before cutting into 16 bars with a sharp knife.
