3 cups rolled oats – use regular rolled oats, they have the perfect chewy texture
¾ cup nuts AND seeds – be generous, use raw
½ cup oil of your choice – neutral, olive oil or coconut oil
½ cup liquid sweetener like maple syrup, less agave, or honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract, cinnamon, and other spices you like plus extra treats like coconut any spicy flakes – it needs flavor!
Dash of kosher salt – it needs it
Spread mixture on a parchment lined sheet pan and bake in a 350F oven until light brown and fragrant, 30 -35 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Cool
ADD CHOPPED DRIED Fruit (or chocolate chips) AFTER baking – this way it won’t get hard and stick to your teeth.
