  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1-3/4 cups quick oats
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped dried apples and/or apricots
  • 1/3 cup dried blueberries, cherries and/or cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons roasted, salted sunflower seeds
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup peanut or soynut butter

  1. In small skillet, toast almonds over medium heat 4 to 5 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring frequently.
  2. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. In bowl of food processor with knife blade attached, process 1/4 cup oats and almonds 15 seconds or to fine crumbs; transfer to medium bowl.
  3. In large bowl, combine dried fruits, sunflower seeds, coconut, cinnamon and remaining 1-1/2 cups oats. Add peanut butter, honey and extract, and stir until well combined and mixture begins to stick together.

    I tired to print this recipe using the print icon at the top but it doesn’t load properly – no recipe. also, how many pieces counts for a serving. 246 calories is a lot of one!

      A serving is four “bites”, so you can fill up at least a little bit for those 246 calories! That’s now reflected above. We weren’t aware of the printing issue and unfortunately don’t have a quick fix – thank you for bringing it to our attention, we will get working on it!
