Add all ingredients to a large bowl and stir to combine. Store at room temperature a large airtight container. Keeps for weeks or even months!
To serve, scoop out 1/2 cup and add to a bowl. Add yogurt or milk of choice and fresh fruit if desired. Eat right away, or let soak for about 30 minutes to soften. Or, if you prefer, you can soak it overnight in the refrigerator.Nutrition information calculated using oats, barley, almonds, and raisins. Nutrition varies based on ingredients used.
*Rolled oats notes
I buy my rolled oats out of the bulk bin at my local grocery store. If you are gluten-free, you'll want to look for certified gluten-free oats.
**Rolled grains notes
Choose grains such as:
Triticale (a cross of rye and wheat)
Quinoa flakes (quinoa is actually a seed that performs like a grain!)
Or just another 2 parts rolled oats!
If you're gluten-free, you'll likely want to stick with quinoa flakes - or simply add more gluten-free rolled oats.
***Nuts and seeds notes
Ideas for nuts and seeds:
Pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
