Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Spread oats and walnuts onto a baking tray.
Bake in the preheated oven, stirring occasionally, until oats and walnuts are lightly browned and fragrant, about 7 minutes. Remove baking tray from oven and let oats and walnuts cool.
Combine cashew butter and honey in a small saucepan; cook and stir over low heat until mixture is smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
Mix oats, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, psyllium husks and chia seeds together in a large bowl; add cashew butter mixture and stir using a spatula or wooden spoon until evenly mixed.
Line an 28x18cm baking dish with enough greaseproof paper so that it hangs over the edges. Pour oat mixture into the dish, spreading and flattening until mixture is pressed well into the dish.
Refrigerate granola bars until solid, about 30 minutes (or freeze for 20 minutes). Cut into bars.
I would highly suggest not using oils when toasting your oats. The oats can absorb the oil, which can effect the flavour and texture of whatever you use them in. Nobody wants a soggy, oily granola bar.
