In a breakfast bowl, add in the dried fruit and apple juice and let soak for 20 minutes. (This is optional, this will just give the bread and fruit a really juicy burst).
While these soak, add the porridge oats, oat bran, baking agents and nuts in a mixing bowl and combine.
Mix the almond milk and apple cider vinegar and stir into the dry mix along with the maple or molasses.
Stir in the soaked dried fruit along with excess juice.
The mix should be thick and sticky.
Let sit in the bowl for 30 minutes before transferring into a greased bread baking tin.
Bake for 45-50 minutes at 180°C until hard to tap, check with a skewer that it is cooked through.
