5 c. rolled oats
1 c. slivered almonds
1 c. sunflower seeds
1/2 c. honey
1/4 c. dried cherries
1/4 c. dried cranberries
1/4 c. raisins
1/2 c. flax seeds
1 t. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line your baking sheet with parchment paper. Place oats, almonds, and sunflower seeds on sheet and bake for 10 minutes to warm them up. Remove from oven and drizzle honey all over the mixture; stir to coat evenly. Return the pan to oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes. Remove from oven and add the cherries, craisins, raisins, flax seed, & cinnamon. Cool well before storing or it will be soggy, not crunchy. Makes about 8 cups.

Notes: I never use the parchment paper. Mine is always done at 25 minutes, but almost burned at 30, so keep an eye on it toward the end.
