Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 30-40 minutes
Place the oats, nuts, seeds, flaked almonds and coconut in a large bowl and mix together. In a small bowl, whisk the apple juice, rice syrup and maple syrup and pour over the dry mixture stirring thoroughly.
Heat the oven to 180C/350F. Add the mixture to a baking sheet and bake for around 25 to 35 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Every 5 minutes, stir the mixture and turn it over to allow even browning of the oats.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Stir in the dried fruit. Store in a sealed container.
Serve with rice milk or almond milk and some fresh berries when in season.
