4 cups uncooked oatmeal
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup coconut
1 T brown sugar
1/4 cup nonfat dried milk
1 tea. cinnamon
(optional: 1/2 cup chopped nuts of your choice)
In a small saucepan, heat on low til melted:
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup honey
1 Tablespoon vanilla
Mix this into the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon or your hands.
Put into a greased shallow pan(s) and bake at 300F for 1/2 hour. Stir occasionally with spatula to turn over. Watch carefully during last 15 min. as it tends to start cooking quickly at that point. Be careful--the coconut and nuts can get overbrowned.
Remove and cool completely. Add raisins or other dried fruits. Store in airtight container.
Note: I soak this in milk for my 2 year old and he eats it with a spoon out of a little bowl. I soak it for about an hour in the fridge and it's then soft enough for him to eat. (I make it without nuts and raisins for him).
