- 4 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 1/4 cup wheat bran
- 1/2 cup wheat germ
- 1/4 cup nuts or seeds (try a combo such as sunflower or sesame seeds and walnuts)
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup apple juice
- 1/2 cup assorted, chopped dried fruit such as apricots, apples or figs
- 2 Tbs canola oil
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Coat a 9x13-inch (23x33cm) pan with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, mix together oats, bran, germ, nuts and cinnamon.
- Blend honey, canola oil and juice. Add mixture to oats and stir until well-coated.

- Add dried fruit when mixture cools. Store in an air-tight container.
