“It’s full of nuts”

Preheat oven to 300 degrees, convection bake if your oven does this trick.

In a very large bowl, mix together

  • 6 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (aka oatmeal)
  • 11/2 cups raw pistachios, hulled
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup raw pecans
  • 2 cups raw pumpkin seeds, hulled
  • 1 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 2 cups coconut chips

Toss well with

  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom

Add

  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 11/4 cups pure maple syrup, dark if available

Mix thoroughly. Spread mixture on two rimmed baking sheets in even layers and bake for 45-50 minutes, stirring 3-4 times during the baking, until golden brown and well toasted.

Serve with chopped dried California apricots, if desired.
