A yummy, heart healthy snack.... and I bet it would be awesome as a cereal with cold milk.
Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F). In a bowl, mix 1 cup oats (or a combo of oats and raw nuts), 3 tbsp brown sugar (lightly packed), and a pinch of salt. Add 3 tbsp good maple syrup. Stir well. Spread onto a baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes. Stir. Place back into oven. Turn oven OFF. Leave for half and hour. Let cool, then toss with your favorites (nuts, dried fruit, chocolate chips), or leave plain.
