  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Put oats, flour, coconut, flax seeds and nuts in a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.

  • Take off heat and add cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and vanilla. Stir.
  • Pour over dry ingredients and stir until combined. Clumps should form. I like mine to be a little bigger than pea size. Let sit for about 10 minutes.
