Freekeh and honey slices

Makes about 15-20

250g rolled oats
200g freekeh, cooked until tender, drained and chopped
175g wholemeal self-raising flour
100g brown sugar
125g dessicated coconut
200g butter
80g clear honey

Preheat the oven to 180C/gas mark 5. Mix the oats, freekeh, flour, sugar and coconut in a bowl.

Melt the butter in a pan or microwave and add the honey, then mix into the dry ingredients until the mixture is a smooth dough.

Grease a 28cm x 18cm x 2-3cm deep baking tin and press the mixture evenly into the tin.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Leave to cool a little in the tin, then turn out and cut into squares or rectangles.
