  1. Soak the dates and sultanas in boiling water for 20-30 mins, until softened. Drain away excess water.
  2. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 20 x 30cm tin with baking paper. 
  3. Melt the margarine, then add the honey and vanilla. Mix in the dry ingredients, including the Weet-Bix™.
  4. Press half the mixture into the prepared tin. Spoon over the date and sultana mix, spreading out evenly. Top with the remaining Weet-Bix™ mixture. Press down firmly using the back of a spoon.
  5. Bake in oven at 180°C for 30-35 mins or until golden brown. Allow to cool before slicing into squares. Store in an airtight container.
