Pre-Heat Oven at 180 Degrees | Baking Tray lined with parchment paper 


Start by mixing the olive oil, honey, vanilla essence and salt in a saucepan. Heat over medium low heat for 4-5 minutes till the honey melts and everything is mixed.


In a large bowl, add the oats, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds, sesame seeds. Mix.

Now pour in the honey mixture and mix everything thoroughly so that no dry clumps remain.

On a baking tray lined with parchment or lightly sprayed with cooking oil, pour over the oats mix. Spread it out evenly and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Make sure you mix it up at the 10-minute mark to ensure even cooking.

Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature. Then add the mixed berries and raisins. Mix and store in an air tight jar.
