    I've made this 3 times this year and think I have it down to great taste and good mouth feel with 20% of calories from fat, 2/3 from oil and 1/3 from nuts. This makes 32 cups. serving size is 1/2 cup (280 calories) and is ideal with 8 ounces of yogurt and a cup of fruit.

    24 cups raw rolled grains
    12 ounces raisins or currants
    12 ounces raw pumpkin seeds
    12 ounces raw sliced almonds
    12 ounces of raw walnuts
    12 ounces chopped dates
    1/2 cup maple syrup
    1/2 cup raw honey
    1/4 cup raw flaxseed oil, cold pressed
    1/4 canola oil
    1/4 cup cinnamon

    Heat liquids to just boiling and pour over combined grains and nuts. Stir until everything is distributed evenly and then bake in small batches at 300 for 20 minutes. Keeps for over a month.

    Be cautious when eating; this is a nutrient rich recipe - everything in it is good for healthy eating but will still pack on pounds if over consumed.

    EDIT: add dried fruit after baking.

    I might try this over my weekend. Reminds me very much of a granola my mom used to make.

    Try these bars:

    2 cups rolled oats
    1/2 cup shredded coconut
    1/2 cup honey
    2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/8 teaspoon salt

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square baking dish.
    Spread the oats and coconut evenly across a baking sheet.
    Toast oats and coconut in preheated oven until browned, about 10 minutes; transfer to a large mixing bowl.
    Mix honey, peanut butter, vanilla extract, and salt in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook and stir until smooth. Pour the honey mixture over the oats and coconut; stir to coat. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish.
    Bake in preheated oven until beginning to dry, about 15 minutes for crunchy granola bars, less if you like them chewy. Cool completely before cutting.
