  1. Preheat the oven to 165°C. Grease a 30 x 20 cm slice tin with spray oil, then line the base and sides with baking paper.
  2. Spread the oats, desiccated coconut and nuts (walnuts and almonds) over a non-stick baking tray, and toast in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown, turning with a spatula every 5 minutes to ensure they cook evenly and don’t catch and burn.
  3. Pour the apple juice into a saucepan and add the dates. Set over a medium heat until the dates have softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the baking soda. Blend to a smooth puree using a hand-held blender.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the toasted oats, coconut and nuts with the smooth puree and all of the other remaining ingredients (seeds, flour, cranberries, banana etc.).
  5. Spoon into the prepared tin and bake for 40-50 minutes or until firm to the touch. Allow to set in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out and leaving to cool completely on a wire rack. Once cool, cut into 4 x 4 even sized pieces.
