I love, love, love this recipe and so many of our guests do too. Easy, yummy, but not real good for the waist line, but oh well. Its always worth it to have a treat once in a while. I have included a picture during the baking process and then after it cools.
5 C Old Fashioned Oats, 1 C walnuts and/or pecans, 1/2 C brown sugar, 2 tsp. cinnamon, 1.5 tsp. nutmeg, 1/2 C maple syrup, 1 C butter (melted), 1/2 raisins and/craisens.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the oats, nuts, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg together. Heat up the butter with maple syrup and blend. Pour over oat mixture and mix well.
Pour onto a well greased cookie sheet. Bake 30 minutes, but stir every 10 minutes to bake evenly. After 30 minutes, let cool completely. Break into pieces and mix with raisins and/or craisens.
Enjoy as a cereal with berries, as a snack or sprinkled over yogurt. Last about 1 week.
