Total time

45 minutes




  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup whole raw hazelnuts
  • ½ cup raw pecan halves
  • ½ cup dry milk powder (or soy milk powder for vegan)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 1 heaping cup chopped assorted dried fruit
  • ¼ cup Sun flower seeds (the green inner kernels of the pumpkin seed)
  • ¼ cup freshly ground flax seed (optional)


  1. Set oven to 350F
  2. Spread the oats and the nuts on an un-greased baking sheet. Toast for about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Let the oats and nuts cool, then pulse a few times in a food processor to lightly chop.
  4. Mix with the rest of the ingredients and stir well.
  5. Store in an airtight container.
  6. To serve, scoop out about 3/4 cup of the mixture, and add enough boiling water (or scalded milk) to just cover the oatmeal. Stir and let sit, covered, for 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Add a splash of milk, half and half, almond or coconut milk for an extra treat.
