Makes 6 Servings
1 cup (85 g) rolled oats
1/4 cup (30 g) chopped almonds
1/2 cup (55 g) chopped pecans
3 tablespoons flaxseed
1/2 cup (50 g) unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup (45 g) dried apples, chopped
2/3 cup (165 ml) apple juice
1/3 cup (75 ml) unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup (120 ml) brown rice syrup
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (180 degrees C). In a large bowl, combine the oats, almonds, pecans, flaxseed, and coconut. Mix together and then spoon onto a cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

Decrease the oven temperature to 250 degrees (120 degrees C). In a medium saucepan, combine the dried apples, apple juice, applesauce, brown rice syrup, cinnamon oil, and cinnamon. Bring to a light boil and simmer 15 minutes, or until the mixture starts to thicken. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.

In a large bowl, combine the oat mixture and the liquid mixture and stir until all of the ingredients are well coated. Transfer back to the cookie sheet and bake 40 minutes, or until lightly browned. Every 10 minutes, remove the cookie sheet from the oven and stir to make sure the mixture doesn’t burn. When done, place on a wire rack to cool.
