  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup crispy rice cereal
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 Barlean’s Flax-Chia-Coconut Blend
  • 1/2 cup toasted coconut
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Preheat the oven to 300-degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Heat a skillet over medium heat and toast the coconut stirring often. Add the coconut to a large bowl.
  • Add the walnut to the skillet also over medium heat to toast.  When you start to smell their nuttiness, they're done.
  • To the bowl, add the oats, rice cereal, wheat germ, Barlean’s Flax-Chia-Coconut Blend, walnuts, cinnamon and salt and mix well.
  • In a second bowl, mix together the oil, honey, water and vanilla.
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients, then turn out onto the prepared parchment paper in a thin layer.
  • Bake for 50 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes until golden brown. If you want to add dried fruit, add it in the last ten minutes of cooking.
  • Store in an airtight container once completely cooled.
