Once again, I bring unto thee oatmeal and raisins. It is just such a wonderful combination! This stuff is so good and addictive. Keep in mind not to have a whole bunch in one sitting because it is rich. Try having some in a little bowl with a splash of milk or yogurt for breakfast or a mid-afternoon snack. I am confident it will never disappoint!
Like a lot of people, I have fallen in love with the coffee bean and I embrace it! There’s just nothing like that first, soul-warming cup in the mornin’!
This homemade cereal literally takes 30 minutes to make, say about 5 minutes prep and 20-25 minutes while it’s doing its thing in the oven. Naturally sweetened, too, (Yay!) with honey and raisins.
For the nuts, it is up to you. Make it whole, chopped, slivered, or none at all. Here, I chopped walnuts in a food processor. They certainly do add a special crunch!
Ode to fall lovin’…and candles.
Let’s just go ahead and include this wonderful little type writer for fun-sies. Just sitting in the corner of my room, hardly gets any attention these days 😦 It’s a shame.
4 c. quick rolled oats
1/2 c. sunflower seeds
1-1/2 c. fresh wheat germ
1 c. raisins
1/2 c. chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)
1 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. honey
1 t. salt
1 T. milk
-Preheat oven to 300.
-Combine dry ingredients in a large pan (a 9-by-13-inch pan works well)
-Mix oil, honey, milk, and salt in a small saucepan.
-Heat until hot, stir, and add to dry ingredients.
-Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring twice between baking (Ex: 8 min. then stir, 9 min. then stir, 8 min. final stir).
*Note: Extra delicious right out of the oven with milk!*
