  • Prep time 10 minutes
  • Total time 1 hour

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup liquid honey
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon prepared wasabi
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup large-flake rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup each pepitas and sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup chopped crystallized ginger
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Method

In small saucepan, cook honey, oil, wasabi, ground ginger and salt over medium heat, whisking, just until honey is beginning to melt, about 2 minutes.


In large bowl, combine oats, apricots, cranberries, pepitas, sunflower seeds, crystallized ginger and sesame seeds. Stir into honey mixture to coat. Scrape onto parchment paper–lined large rimmed baking sheet. Bake in 325°F oven, stirring once, until beginning to brown, about 25 minutes. Let cool completely, about 20 minutes. Break into pieces. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.)
