The fruit should be added after all the cooking is done, or in the last few minutes.
I followed the instructions to the letter, and think that this recipe has masses of potential but gave me a few problems. I used the coconut, added walnust and a few peanuts and raisins and the taste would have been far better if my raisins hadn't burnt. They didn't look too dark, but they were very chewy with an burnt aftertaste, so I picked them out of the mix and then the taste was great. I will make this again... but will add the raisins in the last 10 minutes or so and then I think it will be really good. I ate the de-raisined mixture with chocolate soya milk and it was an excellent breakfast. Please see my rating system, 3 stars because I would like to do some modification on this but with easy 4 star potential. Thanks No MSG for posting the recipe :)
