  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut

  • 1/3 cup honey

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Toast coconut on parchment for about 6 minutes until lightly toasted. Allow coconut to cool to room temperature.

In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, popcorn wheat germ, sunflower and sesame seeds, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Add honey-butter and peanut butter to the oat mixture and stir until well combined.

This is a really good recipe. I personally love the popcorn in it. It makes me think puffed rice cereal would be a great addition too. Has anyone tried that?

Great recipe... although I leave out the popcorn and wheat germ and add an extra 1/2 cup of oats. When are you going to be on the Foot Network again? I also miss the old host... the new host isn't nearly as nice. Thanks for the recipe.
