  • 2 lb rolled oats
  • 12 oz wheat germ
  • 1 lb almonds
  • 1 lb Cashews
  • 1 lb Raw sunflower seed kernels
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1-1/2 lb honey
  • 6 oz water
  • 1/4 cup vanilla
  • 1/4 cup cinnamon
  • 5 oz coconut oil
  • 1 lb raisins optional
  • 1 lb toasted coconut optional


  • Preheat oven to 250F.
  • Combine dry ingredients.
  • In a separate bowl, disolve the salt in the water and then combine remaining ingredients. Pour wet mixture over Dry mixture. Mix well with a spatula, folding liquid up from bottom.
  • Spread out on a baking sheet and bake 15 minutes.
  • Turn mixture over and repeat until cereal is almost dry and nicely brown.  (about an hour)
  • Turn off oven and leave door ajar.
  • Allow cereal to dry in warm oven for another 6-8 hours.  If you have a large food dehydrator, you can experiment with this final drying step in there, instead of in the oven.
  • Optionally, if you like raisins and / or toasted coconut, now is the time to add them.
  • Makes 24 servings (enough for a month)
