Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1.5 cups rolled oats
    2 Tbsp sunflower seeds
    4 Tbsp sliced almonds
    2 Tbsp chopped pecans
    2 Tbsp raisins or dried fruit of choice
    1 1/4 Tbsp honey
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 tsp maple extract

Directions

On a foil lined baking sheet (with an edge), mix together all dry ingredients except raisins.
In a double boiler over medium heat, mix honey, maple extract, and cinnamon together (this makes honey more spreadable).
Pour honey over oat mixture and stir with fork or hands to lightly coat. Spread out over sheet.
Bake for about 15 minutes, until lightly toasted, stirring once during cooking.
Once you remove the cereal from the oven stir in the raisins and let cool.

VARIATION:
Place 1/4 cup buckwheat groats in about 1 cup of water. Soak for 6-12 hours. Rinse, rinse, rinse, until the water is not thick or foggy. Pat dry with towel, and use in recipe, reducing oats to 1 cup.

Makes enough for about 4 servings, 1/2 cup each.

Number of Servings: 4
