Here is a yummy recipe provided by one of our IC support group members to share with all of you!!

3 cups quick oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon water
salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (up to a teaspoon if you prefer)
1/4 cup peanut butter (optional or try almond butter)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon if tolerated

Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl adding more water if needed to ensure it is mixed thoroughly. Spread on a large cookie sheet with an edge.

Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour to 1.5 hours until crisp and golden stirring and checking every 20 min. After cooling add 1-2 cups toasted almonds and/or coconut if desired.

This is a nice addition to top your morning yogurt along with fresh or frozen blueberries.
Add dried instead of fresh blueberries and enjoy with milk or just like it is!
