Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sultanas
  • 1 cup dried fruit (I bought a bag of tropical dried fruit with mango, papaya and  pineapple but you can use any combination or just one variety; preferably low added sugar for a healthier snack)
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
