2 cups old-fashioned oats (not quick oats)
1/2 cup wheat germ
2 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup slivered almonds
1/3 cup sweetened flake coconut
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 cup maple syrup
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Adjust oven rack to middle position, and heat oven to 275 degrees. Coat a 9-by-13-inch metal pan with cooking spray, then set aside.
- Mix oats, wheat germ, brown sugar, salt, almonds and coconut in a bowl.
- Bring syrup, oil, water and cinnamon in a saucepan over low heat. Drizzle over oat mixture, and stir to combine. Pour mixture onto prepared pan. Working a handful at a time, squeeze cereal to form small clumps.
- Bake for 30 minutes. Stir in raisins. Continue to bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes longer. Let cool. You can store it in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks.
