Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Line a 24cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper and set aside
Place a pan over a medium heat. Add the rapeseed oil and the honey, stir until the honey is hot
Remove from the heat and add the oats, dried fruit, nuts and seeds, stirring well to ensure the ingredients are mixed
Once mixed, make sure it's sticky enough to hold together by pressing in your hands, if not add a little more honey. Scoop the mixture into the lined baking tin, pressing down firmly
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges turn a golden brown colour
While still warm, score into 12 individual bars. Leave the cereal bars in the tin to cool completely, then serve or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days
