  • 1 pound organic oats (quick or rolled)
  • 1/2 - 1 cup chopped nuts such as almonds or pecans
  • 1/8-1/4 cup brown sugar (or honey, pure maple syrup or agave nectar)
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ (sometimes also add oat bran or swap it with the w. germ)
  • 1/4-1/3 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1/4-1/2 cup organic unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup bite-size chopped dried fruit combo like apricots & cranberries, raisins & apples
  • Optional: sesame or sunflower seeds, wheat bran, cinnamon, etc.
To Prepare: Place oats & nuts into a large stove-top pot on low to medium heat and stir until nearly golden. Add the shredded coconut, the wheat germ (or oat bran), ground flax seeds & stir for another 8-10 minutes. Add any seeds (sesame or sunflower; listen to the sesame seeds pop). Add brown sugar (or sweetener of choice). Lower heat & continue to stir. Add chopped fruit & stir for another minute. Off the heat, remove pot from stove top & allow mixture to cool. Store in the fridge, in sealed containers, for up to 3 weeks (if it lasts that long). Serve at room temperature with milk or soy, yogurt and fresh fruit. Serving suggestions pictured above.
