It's so much cheaper,
so much healthier
and so much yummier!!
Now that Benjamin eats snacks every day our grocery bill has gone up a little so this is really gonna help out with that!
I make substitutions EVERY time I make this recipe- just depending on what I have in the pantry or what I'm in the mood for- but, here's the original recipe:
6 c. rolled oats
1 c. sunflower seeds
1 c. sliced almonds
1 c. coconut
3/4 c. sesame seeds
1 c. honey
1/2 c. water
3/4 c. canola oil
2 tsp. vanilla
Here's what I made today... (Craisins in the place of the coconut, and chocolate chips in the place of the sesame seeds... oh, and I halved the recipe.)
Mix the dry ingredients together.
Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl...
...and pour into the oats mixture.
Toast on a greased baking sheet @ 325F.
I always cut half into bars, and I break up the other half to eat over yogurt.
