*Bonus: you’ll impress your hipster friends by showing up with a jar of this packaged stylishly with a trendy vintage logo sticker slabbed on it instead of bringing a pack of over priced organic coffee beans..
-Preheat the oven 160 °C and 300 °F
-3 cups of rolled oats (not to refined, usually the cheaper its best or organic if you can afford it), place in a large bowl
-if you have it, 1 table spoon of wheat germ
-add 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon if you like
-in a pan on low heat, stir 1 cup of raw honey and 2 table spoons of butter together until runny
-Chop up whatever you feel like adding, like 1/2 cup of almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds etc..
-Add to your dry oats mix, the honey and butter will have melted by now and is ready to be poured over the mix (add a pinch of salt to bring out all flavours)
-Mix all together until it’s all moist and spread out evenly on a baking sheet
-Put in oven for 25 min then take it out to mix all around, put it back into the oven for another 20 min or so
-When all is nice and golden, take out to cool…now you can add any extras, like raisins, chocolate bits, dried fruit, coconut shavings…or if you’re feeling ambitious goji berries, chia seeds you know the expensive stuff that makes you feel healthier
*The honey can be replaced by maple syrup or apple syrup, whatever you want, or feel like throwing in there.
Kids eat it with yogurt, as snacks, as cereal etc…hope you enjoy!
