  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups large-flake rolled oats
  • 2 cups puffed rice cereal
  • 1 cup pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds)
  • 3/4 cups chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup roasted unsalted shelled sunflower seeds
  • 3 tablespoons flaxseeds
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Method

In large bowl, stir together oats, cereal, pepitas, pecans, sunflower seeds and flaxseeds.

In saucepan over medium heat, cook brown sugar, maple syrup, oil, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt, stirring, until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes. Pour over oat mixture, tossing to coat.

Spread on 2 parchment paper–lined baking sheets. Bake in top and bottom thirds of 325ºF (160ºC) oven, switching and rotating pans halfway through and stirring twice, until crisp and golden, 30 to 35 minutes.

Let cool on pans on racks. Break up any large clumps. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 3 weeks.)
