Ingredients

  • 1 flax egg
  • 6 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup pecans roughly chopped
  • 1 cup additional nuts pistachio, cashew, almonds, etc,
  • ½ cup seeds pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, etc
  • ½ cup syrup sweetener maple syrup, honey, or agave nectar
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300°F/150°C. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Make the flax egg and set it aside.
  • Combine the oats, pecans, additional nuts, and seeds in a large bowl. Stir to combine.
  • In a small bowl, combine the syrup, peanut butter, and coconut oil. Stir to combine. Heat this in the microwave in 11-second increments until the mixture is smooth enough to spread. Stir in the flax egg.
  • Pour the peanut butter syrup mixture over the oat mixture. Stir, ensuring all the oatmeal and nuts are coated.

  • Store in an airtight container.
