Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300°F and set the oven rack in the middle.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine slow-cooking oats, ground walnuts, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds and cinnamon.
  3. In a smaller glass bowl, combine honey and coconut oil and warm in microwave or on stovetop until liquid. Add vanilla and water.
  4. Add wet mixture to the dry, stirring until crumbly. Spread onto a 13-by-18-inch baking sheet. Bake for 35 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes and rotating pan to compensate for any hot spots in the oven. Remove from oven and cool.
  5. Transfer to a large bowl, and add goji berries, dried cherries, slivered almonds and shredded coconut. Store in airtight containers in the fridge. Can be eaten by the handful, or topped with your milk of choice, fresh fruit or yogurt.
