S/C/G: 186/155/maintaining

Height: 5'4"

Default

6 cups rolled oats
1 cup chopped raw almonds and walnuts (or any other nuts you prefer)
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup flax seed
1/2 cup honey (can lower this to 1/4 cup to cut down on sugar if you want)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 and grease a big baking dish with a little extra olive oil. Stir everything together really well, and then dump it into the dish and spread it out. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 (be sure you get the corners). That's it! The best thing is you can substitute any nuts/seeds/grains you like, and even add chocolate/carob chips or dried fruit after you bake it if you want. I keep a 1/2 cup scoop in my granola and that's about the perfect size for a yummy breakfast.
