Great substitute for crutons in salads. Can add to yogurt, hot cereal, cottage cheese. Or just snack on. Are slightly sweet & packed full of fiber! Serving size is 1/2 oz ((3Tbsp) Source: Cuisine at Home, June 2009

Recipe Ingredients for Whole Grain Clusters

1 1/2 c. oatmeal
1 c. Total cereal
1/3 c. unsalted pumpkin seeds (shelled)
1/4 c. unsalted sunflower seeds (shelled)
1/4 c. wheat germ
1/2 c. honey
1 tbsp. flax seed oil

Recipe Directions for Whole Grain Clusters

Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment (or foil lightly sprayed with cooking oil). Mix together all ingredients except honey & flax seed oil. In a small sauce pan heat honey and oil on medium heat until hot, pour into cereal mixture. Rapidly stir to combine, then spread even layer onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 35min or until golden brown. Remove baking sheet from oven, sprinkle with Kosher salt and let cool for 15min. Store in airtight containers for up to 4 weeks. Hints: Pumpkin seeds are also called pepitas & can be found in the nut or produce sections in large grocery stores. I couldn't find unsalted pepitas or sunflower seeds so I omited the kosher salt at the end. I also found it helpful to stir the mixture some midway thru the baking, then lightly press down on the mixture and continue baking. Let it cool completely before packaging larger clusters.
