  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup finely chopped almonds
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans

  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 3/4 cup honey

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 2 cups raisins or sweetened dried cranberries or dried cherries


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment or aluminum foil.
  2. Combine the oats, sunflower seeds, almonds, pecans, and walnuts in a large bowl.  Stir together the salt, brown sugar, maple syrup, honey, oil, cinnamon, and vanilla in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then pour over the dry ingredients, and stir to coat. Spread the mixture out evenly on the baking sheets.
