Breakfast in a dish--grains, nuts, fruit, bananas and dairy.
1 cup shredded coconut
8 cups old fashioned oats
2 cups chopped, slivered or sliced almonds
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
1/2 cup flax seeds
2/3 cup coconut oil or canola oil
1-1/2 cup honey
1-1/2 cup raisins (golden, dark or mix of the two) or 1-1/2 cup dried fruit
1/2 cup banana chips, broken into pieces (optional)
1 tsp ground cinnamon (optional) I add this later, if desired.
1/2 tsp grated nutmeg (optional) I add this later, if desired.
--Preheat oven to 350. Spread coconut on pan and toast 5 min--until starting to brown on top--watch closely, it will burn easily. Set coconut aside to cool. Reduce oven to 300. Line baking pans with parchment or foil. Combine all but coconut and raisins. Spread in single layer on pans. Bake approx. 25 min until golden. Remove from pans immediately if using foil. Cool and break apart. Add coconut, banana chips and raisins or fruit. Store in airtight container for up to one month or freeze for up to six months.
