Servings and Ingredients
|2 ¾ c. Hy-Vee quick oats|
|1 c. chopped Hy-Vee pecans|
|1 c. Hy-Vee dried cranberries|
|⅓ c. dried pumpkin seeds|
|1 medium Granny Smith apple, seeded and diced|
|1 tbsp. Hy-Vee cinnamon|
|½ tsp. kosher salt|
|½ c. packed Hy-Vee brown sugar|

- Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix together the oats, pecans, cranberries, pumpkin seeds, apple, cinnamon and salt.
- In a small saucepan, warm the sugar, syrup and olive oil over low heat until the sugar has just dissolved. Fold syrup mixture into oat mixture, stirring to coat well.
