11 c. rolled oats
3 c. almonds (coarsely chopped) or slivered almond
2 1/2 c. Raw Wheat Germ
1/4 c. Flour
[Note: Wheat Germ goes rancid easily - the store should have it refrigerated and you should keep it in the freezer.]

1 c. canola oil
1 c. maple syrup
1/2 c. natural peanut butter (only peanuts & salt)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. salt
2/3 c. hot water

Sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, hazelnuts, raw cashews, raisins, and currents

Heat oven to 300º. Mix the DRY together in a big bowl. Mix the WET together in small bowl. Now mix 'em together 'til well blended.

Spread on 2 cookie sheets, about 1/2" thickness. Be sure there are no gaps where the pan shows through (it will burn there). Bake for 45 - 60 minutes, in the upper part of the oven (to avoid burning). Then just turn off the oven—leave the pans in with the door shut until they've cooled.

You can add sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, chopped hazelnuts, or chopped raw cashews to the "DRY", and raisins or currants after cooking.
