Preheat the oven to 150C.

Pulse the nuts (and seeds if using) in a food processor.

Transfer to a large bowl. Add in the grains, spices, salt and extras (if using). Drizzle over the melted oil and sweetener. Mix well and spread onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 20 minutes. Stir to mix around and bake for a further 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and mix through the dried fruit. Leave to cool fully and transfer to a large jar (or other container) with a lid.

Serve with your choice of milk and/or yogurt and a spoon of nut butter if you choose.
