Jen Schmidt
  • minutes
  • Serves 8


6 cups

old fashioned oats (not quick cooking)

1 cup

chopped walnuts * (Amount varies based on preference. You may increase or decrease amount and substitute with dried fruit)

1 cup

sliced almonds *

1 cup

wheat germ

1 cup

additional dry ingredients. Mix and match your choice. * (Options include flax seeds – which I always add, since they are so healthy, cracked wheat, sunflower seeds, bran cereal, vanilla flavored protein powder and more)

1/2 cup

brown sugar * (You may omit for a less sweet, all natural version)

1 tsp


1 tbsp

vanilla or almond extract

1/2 cup

canola oil (substitute coconut oil for added health benefit)

2/3 cup


*Dried fruit, optional (1/2 cup shredded coconut, 1/2 cup raisins, berries. I added the berries at the end.)

* As long as you stick to the wet / dry ingredients, feel free to mix and match ingredients
