Ingredients

    4 cups thick rolled oats (not quick or instant)
    1/4 cup buckwheat, soaked in water overnight (1 hr min)
    1/2 cup whole almonds, chopped
    1/4 cup sunflower seeds
    2 tbsp sesame seeds
    1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
    2 1/2 tbsp honey
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1/3 cup raisins or other dried fruit

Directions

Preheat oven to 325F. Lightly oil or spray a large baking sheet or cake pan (whatever you use, make sure it has an edge).

In a large bowl, mix oats, soaked buckwheat, almonds, and sunflower and sesame seeds. Set aside.

On a double boiler, whisk honey, applesauce, vanilla, and cinnamon together until well blended. This will make it easier to mix/stir the honey.

Pour honey mixture over the dry mixture and stir well to mix through; try not to leave any clumps as they will not cook.

Spread oat mixture out evenly in prepared pan and put in oven for 25-35 minutes, until lightly browned (your kitchen will smell like cinnamon rolls), stirring every 7-10 minutes to make sure edges do not burn.

Let cool and then stir in raisins. Store in airtight container for about 2 weeks.

Yield: appx 5 1/3 cups, 16 servings of 1/3 cup each.
