This recipe is converted to the TMX from Dish magazine. Issue 38. All the chopping is done in the TMX, and the heating of the liquids also. The mix is them slowly roasted in a warm oven, before the dried Apricots and Cranberries are added. It makes 13 cups.
1 cup of Dried Apricots
1/2 cup of Cranberries.
1 cup of skin on Almonds
1 1/2 cups of dates
65g. golden syrup or brown Sugar.
1/3 cup of Apple or Orange juice.
1 teaspoon each,ground cinnamon and ginger
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
5 cups of rolled oats.
3/4 cup of sunflower seeds
3/4 cup of pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup of wheat germ
1/2 cup of sesame seeds.
3/4 cup of shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 150 o C
Zap Apricots in TMX until chopped but not mashed. Set aside in dish with Cranberries.
Zap Almonds until slightly chopped. There will still be some whole nuts, this is OK.
Set aside in large bowl.
Zap dates until slightly chopped and add to Almonds.
Place all liquids and spices in TMX bowl and heat 5 mins./80 o/ speed 1 .
While this is heating, add to bowl with Almonds and dates, all the other ingredients EXCEPT the Apricots and cranberries.
When liquids and spices are warmed add to mix in large dish and fold over to coat mix.
Tip into 2 roasting trays and place in preheated oven for 20 to 30 mins. Turning mix over every 5 mins.Do not over heat/cook the mix as it will become crunchy as it cools.
I watched the coconut and when it started to brown slightly then it was cooked.
When cold stir through the Apricots and Cranberries.
Store in an air tight container.
