60g / 2.1oz pumpkin seeds

80g / 2.8oz dark chocolate

Roughly chop the hazelnuts and pistachios, and add them to the bowl along with the pumpkin seeds. Stir everything until fully incorporated.

Line a 7” square tin with baking paper and pour the mixture into the tin. Even out the top with the back of a metal spoon or by pushing down using a small piece of baking paper. Then decorate with a few apricots on top and even out the top again, pushing the apricots into the mixture.

Pop the tin in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Remove the bars from the tin.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a bowl on top of a saucepan containing a little water on a medium heat. Once the chocolate has melted, transfer it to a small glass or bowl.

All done! Keep the bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
