Ingredients

  • 3 Cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 Cup coarsely chopped nuts – your choice
  • 1/2 Cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 Cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 Cup sunflower seeds
  • 4 Tbs. packed brown sugar
  • 1Tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 Tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 Tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 Cup honey
  • 3 Tbs. F. Oliver’s Roasted French Walnut Oil

Directions

  • Mix all dry ingredients in large bowl.
  • Combine honey and olive oil in small bowl until well-blended, then add to dry ingredients, mixing in thoroughly.
  • Spread on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake in preheated 300 degree oven for 40 minutes, tossing at 10 minute intervals.
  • Cool on rack. Stir and store in airtight container.
  • You may add in dried fruit when ready to serve (but not before); however, it is wonderful on its own with a bowl of fresh fruit (berries, pineapple, grapes, apples) and topped with non-fat plain Greek yogurt.
