Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 250F (120C, or gas mark ).

In a large, shallow roasting pan, combine the rolled oats, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, wheat germ, coconut, walnuts, almonds, bran, flaxseeds, cinnamon, Splenda, and protein powder, mixing them very well.

Stir the molasses into the canola oil; it won't really blend with it, but it will help the molasses get distributed evenly.

Pour the mixture over the dry ingredients and stir until it's uniformly distributed.

Place in the oven and toast for an hour, stirring once or twice.

Store in a tightly covered container.

Serve topped with cream or half-and-half.
