compliments of Shirley Swenson my sister in law!
4 cups rolled oats
2 ½ cups wheat germ (20 oz. = 4 ½ cups)
1 tsp. cinnamon
2-3 Tbsp. brown or raw sugar
¾ cup honey
1/3 cup salad oil
1 tsp. vanilla
Chopped dates, raisins, dried cranberries and nuts about 3/4 cup each
Mix the oats, wheat germ, cinnamon, and sugar together. Add the honey and mix well (with your hands if necessary). Add the salad oil and vanilla, and mix again with your hands. Add the chopped dates, nuts, raisins, and any other toppings as desired. Spread in two baking pans (such as 9” x 13” pans), and bake in 325 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Serve with milk. Keeps well. Store in a Tupperware type container.
