Crust & Topping


  1. Place the three types dried fruit in a large saucepan with the apple juice, sea salt, cherry juice concentrate and maple syrup. Bring to a boil, reduce the flame to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl or measuring cup, combine the kuzu and cold water. Stir until completely dissolved. Add dissolved kuzu, a little at a time, to the cooked fruit while stirring constantly. Cook 1 minute until thick. Turn off flame and allow to cool while making the crust. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  3. To prepare the crust and topping, roast oats in a dry skillet until slightly browned and they release a nutty aroma. Remove and place in a medium mixing bowl.
  4. Dry roast the sunflower seeds, stirring constantly, until slightly browned. Place in a food processor or blender, and pulse just until a coarse consistency. Combine with oats. Add flours and sea salt, and mix.
  5. Add vanilla, olive oil apple juice and maple syrup, and mix again.
  6. Lightly oil a 11 12" x 16 12" baking sheet.
  7. Sprinkle 34 of the crust mixture over the baking sheet.
  8. With a spatula or rolling pin press the crust mixture down until flat and evenly covering the bottom of the sheet.
  9. Spread cooked fruit evenly over the crust with a spoon.
  10. Take the remaining crust mixture and sprinkle it on top of the fruit. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
  11. Remove and allow to cool for 20 minutes or so before cutting into squares.
