  1. 3 1/2 cups rolled oats

    1 1/4 cups wheat germ or Flax seed

    2 tablespoon cinnamon

    1/4 teaspoon clove

    1/2 teaspoon allspice

    3/4 cup raw sugar

    3/4 cup apple butter

    1/3 cup maple syrup

    In a large bowl mix the rolled oats, wheat germ or flax seed, cinnamon, clove, allspice, and raw sugar. Add apple butter, maple syrup and mix well. Incorporate the dried apples, pecans and cranberries. Place on a cookie sheet prepared with parchment paper (you may need to divide this to two baking sheets for crispness) and bake for 25 minutes at 350° stirring occasionally. Remove from oven and thoroughly stir. Return to the oven to continue to cook until lightly browned. Allow to completely cool and store in an airtight container.
