Almonds, toasted oats, and sesame seeds combine to make a healthy and not-too-sweet cereal. For breakfast, it can be topped with yogurt and berries, or you might even find yourself sneaking into this all day long!

5 cups oats (not quick-cooking)

1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar

1/2 cup wheat germ

1/2 cup slivered or sliced almonds

1/4 cup sesame seeds

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1/3 cup light corn syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cook the oats in a large baking pan for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let stand until cool. Combine the oats, brown sugar, wheat germ, almonds and sesame seeds in a large bowl and mix well. Add the oil, corn syrup, and vanilla and stir until the dry ingredients are coated. Spoon into the baking pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until browned, stirring often. Let stand until cool, stirring occasionally. Serve with cold milk, soy milk, or yogurt and fruit. Store in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag. You may add dried cherries, raisins or your choice of nuts if desired.

Make a double batch to save time!
