Using a large saucepan melt the fat gently and add Agave.  While this is melting, chop dates, figs and cashews together finely or with a food processor.  place all the dry ingredients (oats, flour, cinnamon, salt, fruit and nut mix) into the fat/agave mixture and make sure it is well mixed.  Spread into the flapjack tin an press down firmly.  Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes until golden.  Slice into desired number slices and allow to cool in the tin – they will firm up further on cooling.
