Sailbirds Birdseed Slice Recipe

My Aunty Margaret gave us a recipe for birdseed slice which I've been experimenting with, adapting and baking at least once a week. It's delicious!!! It's so good that I want to share it here.

(Chihiro, I'm sure you could do something even more amazing with this recipe – please share your ideas!! xx).


1 cup sultanas

1 cup chopped dates

½ cup chopped dried apricots

1 ½ cups mixed seeds (sesame seeds, pepitas and sunflower seeds)

½ cup almonds, chopped

¼ cup shredded coconut

1 Tablespoon rolled oats

2 tablespoons self-raising flour
3 eggs, lightly beaten

1 Chop the dates, dried apricots and almonds. Combine with sultanas, mixed seeds, oats and coconut in a large bowl. Add the flour and toss mixture to coat. Add eggs and mix well.

2 Press mixture into a 20x30cm greased and lined baking tray and cook on the lowest shelf for 30 minutes at 180C.

3 Allow to cool before cutting into bars.

Variations I've tried adding so far:

½ cup dark chocolate buds

½ cup macadamias
