5.5 cup rolled oats
4.5 cup nuts (selection of almonds, walnuts, cashews, hazelnuts)
3/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/4 cup coconut oil
scant ½ cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
Combine well. Spread onto two large baking sheets and bake at 325F for 20-25 mins.
Sprinkle with Maldon salt.
Fold in 2 cups dried cranberries or cherries. Cool completely before storing, refrigerated, in an airtight container.
Brined Walnuts
1 lb raw walnut halves
4 cups warm water
1/2 cup kosher salt
In a large bowl, dissolve salt in water. Add walnuts. Let soak for three hours: drain.
Spread walnuts into a single layer on a baking sheet. Allow to dry in a 170F oven for 5-6 hours, stirring periodically to encourage even drying. The nuts will have a crispy, somewhat crackly texture when thoroughly dried. (Under-drying will result in the nuts being vulnerable to mold.)
Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
