Spread nuts and oats on a baking sheet and toast in a 350 degree F oven

This granola is awesome as a snack to pack and go!
Tip: Toast nuts in a 350 degree F oven until you smell the aroma, about 5 minutes. Watch for golden brown.
Suggestion: Add ½ teaspoon or more or less of your favourite sweet spice…cinnamon, cardamom, pinch of clove, dash of vanilla. Yum!
Suggestion: If using Medjool dates, roast in the oven on 350 degree F or panfry until they are more chewy crunchy and less sticky. Caramelized. Just like natures candy!
