  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Mix oats, chia, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, coconut, pecans and cranberries together.
  • Brown butter in a small sauce pan
  • In a separate saucepan, heat milk, salt and honey to boiling, remove and cool.
  • When butter is brown (see video below in Notes on how to brown butter), add to honey mixture. Cool for a minute or so, then pour over oat mixture and stir. Stir in wheat germ.
  • Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray and spread mixture on sheet. Cook for about 15 minutes, cool and store in ziplock bag. 


*Note: I store this in a ziplock bag in the freezer for several months.
