Preheat the oven to 180C Weigh 200g porridge oats into a mixing bowl. I also add a couple of spoons of bran for added fibre but that is optional.
Add two eggs and mix in
Add the nuts and mix well. I used flaked almonds, pecans and hazelnuts
Add 2 tsp of spice. I used 1.5 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp each of ground ginger and nutmeg
Spread out in a fairly thin layer on a lined baking tray and bake in the oven until the mixture has dried out. This will take around 20 mins depending on your oven. Check and stir it every 5 mins
Be careful to make sure it doesn't burn. Remove it from the oven and allow to cool completely.
Stir in your dried fruit. I used cranberries and dates. You can also break up any large lumps of oats.
