Preheat oven to 180˚C. Line a 20cm (8 inch) square tin with baking paper so you can lift out the finished slice easily.
Place dates and nectarines (or apricots) into TM bowl and chop 10 seconds/speed 10. Add apple juice and lemon juice and cook 5 minutes/100˚C/speed 2.
Fruit should be soft and filling mixture should be fairly smooth. If necessary, cook for a bit longer, add a little water or set the dial to and blitz on turbo for a 1-2 seconds until desired texture is reached. Set filling mixture aside and wash and dry TM bowl.
If you have two TM bowls, prepare the filling in the first bowl and set bowl aside while using the second bowl to mill chia seeds and make oat mixture.
Place 150g oats on a baking tray and roast 5-10 minutes until just starting to brown. If you are short of time you can skip this step but it adds flavour to the finished slice.
Add chia seeds to clean and dry TM bowl and mill 30 seconds/speed 10. Set aside in small mixing bowl with 80g water. Mix and leave to thicken while oats are roasting.
Add 65g oats to TM bowl and mill 10 seconds/speed 10. Add sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds and mill 5 seconds/speed 10 (if using oatmeal, mill seeds then add oatmeal with remaining ingredients).
Add roasted oats, baking powder, coconut and sugar and mix 10 seconds/reverse/speed 4. Add chia mix, oil, rice syrup and vanilla and set dial to . Knead mixture for 10 seconds or until well combined. Use spatula to assist if necessary.
Using a fork, gently press half of the oat mixture into the base of the prepared tin. Evenly spread the filling mixture over the oat mixture. Sprinkle the remaining oat mixture over the filling and distribute evenly with a fork. Press down gently.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until well cooked, golden and slightly crispy at the edges. Cover with foil during cooking if necessary. Remove from oven and cool in the tin for 20 minutes before cutting into slices. Store in an airtight container or in the fridge. This slice keeps well but you can crisp is up again if it softens by placing it back into the oven at 180˚C for 10-15 minutes.
