We eat it with vanilla yogurt and fresh fruits, most week days. I usually sprinkle ground flax seeds on it (as I do on anything I can get away with). So not only am I getting my fresh fruit and fiber but dairy in the yogurt (osteoporosis is a serious concern for all women).
Here is my MIL’s adaptation of Alton Brown’s recipe (I heart Alton).
3 cups of rolled oats
1 cup of cashews
1 cup of slivered almonds
¾ unsweetened shredded coconut
¼ cup dark brown sugar
¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup vegetable
¾ teaspoon salt
Pre-Heat oven to 280 degrees F
In a large bowl combine everything in the order it appears above.
Place on two sheet pans- for about an hour and 15 min, checking and stirring approximately every 15-20 min
I keep this in a large Tupperware and this amount lasts us for about two months.
