  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups nuts, coarsely chopped if necessary
  • 1 cup seeds (sesame, flax, millet, chia, hemp, pumpkin, sunflower, or any combination)
  • 1/2-2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup or honey
  • 1 T vanilla
  • 1 t cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 t salt (optional)



Step 1

Preheat oven to 325. Put parchment paper or foil on large rimmed baking sheet (15x17). Mix together oats, nuts, and seeds. Whisk together remaining ingredients and pour over oat mixture. Pour into prepared pan and pat down evenly and very firmly. Bake 35 minutes or so, until golden. Remove from oven and press down again while warm. Let cool then break into chunks.

Millet - gives crunch and contains protein and iron.
Chia - great source of Omega 3 and calcium.
Hemp - great source of Omega 3 and complete protein.
