200 g Rolled oats
150 g Rye flakes (*)
150g Barley Flakes (*)
40 g Pumpkin seeds
50 g Whole almonds
60 g Walnuts
2½ tbsp Chopped hazelnuts
40 g Brazil nuts
30 g Sunflower seeds
2½ tbsp Chia seeds
4 tbsp Shaved coconut
2 tbsp Cocoa Nibs
2 tbsp Water
4 tbsp Runny Honey
3 tbsp Coconut oil
Preheat the oven to 170C.
Put the water, coconut oil and runny honey in a small saucepan and heat gently until the oil has melted and the mix is homogeneous.
Mix all the dry ingredients, except the shaved coconut and cocoa nibs, with the liquid in a large mixing bowl.
Spread the mixture out on 2 baking tins lined with non-stick baking paper or a ceramic dish and put in the pre-heated oven.
Turn over the mixture about halfway through baking (after approx. 20 min), add the coconut shavings and re-distribute evenly again.

When ready, let it cool down completely and then add the cocoa nibs. Store in an airtight container for up to a month.
Serve with Greek yogurt and fresh berries. It is also fantastic with almond milk.
