1 Preheat the oven to 180°C and line 2 large baking trays with baking paper.
2 In a large bowl, combine the oats and seed mix. Place golden syrup in a small microwave-proof bowl and heat on defrost setting for about 10 seconds to soften/liquefy it. Pour the golden syrup, apple juice concentrate and vanilla essence into the oat mixture and combine, using your hands to rub in evenly.
3 Place the oat mixture on trays and spread out evenly. Cook for 10 minutes, stir the mixture and swap trays. Cook for another 3-5 minutes or until oats are lightly toasted. Cool oats on tray.
4 In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts and dried fruit. Store in an airtight container.
If you can't find a seed mix, use 1/3 cup sunflower seeds.
Buy nuts that are already toasted to save time.
