  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp Chinese 5-spice powder

  2. Using a very large bowl, combine the beaten egg white, honey, brown sugar, olive oil, 5-spice powder and salt. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Add the old-fashioned oats, coconut, almonds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds, and stir until completely coated.
  4. Spread the oat mixture evenly onto the two prepared baking sheets.
  5. Bake in the center of a pre-heated 300 degree oven for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven, stir well and return to the oven for another 10 minutes or until browned to your taste.
  7. Remove from the oven and pour immediately into a large mixing bowl to cool. Stir in the dried fruit, orange peel and almond extract.
  8. Cool completely in the bowl, stirring occasionally. Store in an airtight container.
