Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (8 oz / 227 g)
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon raw sunflower seeds (1.5 oz / 43 g)
  • 1 cup scant sliced almonds (3 oz / 85 g)
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ (1.5 oz / 43 g)
  • 1/2 cup honey (6 oz / 170 g)
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon brown sugar (1.75 oz / 50 g)
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter (1 oz / 28 g)
  • 2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (10 g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (2 g)
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon dried cherry (3 oz / 85 g)
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon dried blueberries (3 oz / 85 g)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Butter an 8”x8” baking pan, line the bottom of the pan with a strip of parchment paper about 8” in width and let the ends hang loose over the sides.
  • Spread the oats, wheat germ, sunflower seeds and almonds on a jelly roll pan and toast in the oven for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Cook the honey, brown sugar, butter, vanilla and salt on the stove top in a medium sauce pan on medium heat until the brown sugar completely dissolves.
  • When the oat mixture is done, remove from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to 300°F.
  • Immediately add the oat mixture into the pan with the honey mixture. Add the dried fruits and combine using a wooden spoon.
  • Transfer this honey oat mixture to the prepared baking pan, distribute it evenly and press down to the sides and corners of the pan.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Remove and let cool completely before cutting into 16 squares.
  • Wrap each square in parchment paper and store in an airtight container.
