  1. Preheat the oven to 160C and grease and line a 20cm loose bottomed cake tin.
  2. Roughly chop half the nuts and seeds then mix together with the dried blueberries, dates, apricots, flour and spices in a bowl.
  3. Place the maple syrup, coconut sugar and apple juice or wine into a pan and allow to bubble over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Pour the mixture over the dry ingredients and mix well, then spoon into the tin and smooth out evenly. Bake for 30 minutes until soft but not sticky.
  5. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then pop out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with coconut milk powder sifted through a sieve, cut into 8-10 slices and enjoy!
