  • 6 C of steel cut oats (rolled oats will also work)
  • 1 C wheat germ (adds nutrients and flavour!)
  • 1 C unsweetened coconut, shredded (optional)
  • 3/4 C sunflower seeds, unsalted
  • 3/4 C sliced almonds

Pre-heat oven to 350F. Mix together the oatmeal, wheat germ, coconut, cinnamon, seeds and nuts. Pour oil and honey into a microwavable bowl, microwave for 30-45 seconds, then whisk.

Cool and add flax seeds.
