  • 100g soft dried apricots, chopped
  • 75g soft dried figs, chopped
  • 50g dried apple slices, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 2, 150°C, fan 130°C.
  2. Line a large baking tray (or 2 medium trays) with baking paper.
  3. Add all the ingredients except the egg whites to a large bowl and mix to evenly distribute the fruits, coconut, and spices.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until they create soft peaks, then mix into the oat mixture until everything is well coated and sticking together.
  5. Spread the mixture out evenly on the baking tray (or trays), leaving some larger clumps and some smaller.
  6. Bake for 40 mins, stirring after 30 mins until golden brown and holding together in clusters.
  7. Cool completely on the tray, then transfer to an airtight container until ready to serve.
  8. The oats will keep for up to 1 week.

Tip: You may easily swap your favorite dried fruits in this recipe; keep it simple with raisins and sultanas, or go for a tropical twist with dried pineapple and mango.
