Baking With Debbie

Thanks to Debbie for hosting at her home, way back on October 8, 2015,  and baking with us.  I believe we talked over her and didn’t hear all of her prep tips.  She was more than happy to share the recipes with us, though!


2 3/4 cup rolled oats 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup unsweetened coconut 1/3 cup maple syrup
1 cup unsalted pistachios 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup unsalted pepitas 3/4 cup dried sour cherries
1 T kosher salt or 1 ¼ tsp fine salt  

Preheat oven to 300. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Mix oats, coconut, pistachios, pepitas and salt in a large bowl. Warm the brown sugar, olive oil and maple syrup over low heat stirring until sugar dissolves. Pour over oat mixture and stir till coated evenly. Spread onto baking sheets and bake 20 – 25 min until lightly golden and dry – stirring often. Remove from oven and stir in cherries. Let cool. Store in an airtight container for one week or freeze for up to one month.
