Museli Mix Up Slice

My Dad returns to work after New Years holidays today.  So, I made him some museli bars for his work lunch.  But really they are nicer than museli bars which is why I named them a "museli mix up slice." In my mind, slice is usually moister; with an iresistable soft-but-chewy texture.  Feel free to change the dried fruit, seed or nuts to your own taste.

Ingredients
50g margarine (or butter)
1/3 cup raw sugar
1/4 cup honey
generous 1/2 cup of rolled oats
1/3 cup crushed up Special K cereal
1/2 cup self-raising flour
50g pumpkin seeds
50g sunflower seeds
50g sultanas
40g dates, chopped roughly
1/3 cup almonds, chopped roughly
1 tbsp full cream milk powder
1 tbsp water

Method
In a saucepan, on medium heat, melt together the margarine, sugar and honey.  Meanwhile, combine the other ingredients in a bowl, except for the 1 tbsp of water.  Once the sugar in the saucepan has dissolved, pour it over the dry ingredients.  Stir together until mixture comes together; add water in.  Pour into a lined and greased square tin and bake for 25 minutes on 170 degrees (fan-forced).  Remove from oven when golden brown; texture will firm up upon cooling.  Leave in tin for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.  Cut into 6 medium size museli bars.
