This will make a double recipe (just enough for 22 plastic ziplock "snack" bags:
- mix 9 cups old-fashioned oats and 1 cup nuts (we used sliced almonds and pecans today)
- in a small sauce pan heat and mix 1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice, 1/2 cup maple syrup (real), 2 tablespoons canola oil, 4 teaspoons cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon salt.
- pour mixture over oats and nuts, bake for about 25 minutes, stir every 10 minutes, at 350 degrees.
- once cooled, add 1 cup coconut, 1 cup raisins, and in our house 1 cup chocolate chips (Ghiradelli).
Easy, fast, somewhat healthy, and gentle to both the earth and my food budget!
