Makes 6 cups
4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking)
1 cup sliced almonds or cashews
1/2 cup shredded coconut (preferably unsweetened)
1/4 cup unsalted pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds) or shelled sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pure agave syrup
2 tablespoons canola oil/sunflower oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
¼ cup flax seeds
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup dried fruit (We like currants and dried cranberries!)
- Heat oven to 325° F. In a bowl, toss the oats, nuts, coconut, flax seeds and pepitas with the maple syrup, oil, cinnamon and salt. Transfer to rimmed baking sheets.
- Bake, tossing once, until golden and crisp, 15 – 20 minutes. **At 10 min. toss and check crispness.
- Add the dried fruit and toss to combine. Let cool.
