Makes about 6 cups
3 cups regular oats (not instant)
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup dried cherries or Craisins
1/2 cup dried apricots (chopped)
1/3 cup walnuts
1/2 cup sunflower seeds (unsalted)
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350Â°
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients-oats, almonds, cherries, apricots, walnuts, sunflower seeds.
In a medium sized bowl, combine vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar, honey and butter. Pour over oat mixture. Mix well so that everything is covered in honey and butter.
Spread into an even layer on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake for 15 minutes. Stir and bake an additional 5 minutes. Do not let over cook. You want it crunchy, but not burnt. But, depending on your oven you may need to cook longer.
Let cool completely before breaking into pieces. Store in an airtight container (I like mason jars) for about 2 weeks.
