*To make coconut syrup, dissolve 150g sugar dissolved in 75ml of water on a low heat.

1. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F/Gas 4). Roughly chop the all the nuts with a knife or in a food processor. You can always tie them in a tea towel and smash them with a rolling pin too. Depending on the variety of dried fruit and your preference, either leave them whole or chop into little pieces.

3. Line a baking tray with a greaseproof paper. Use a moistened spatula to spread the mixture over the tray in a 2cm thick layer.

4. Bake in the centre of the oven for around 15 minutes until the mixture is holding together well.

5. Slice into 12 bars while still warm, then leave to cool and store in an airtight container.
