Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup creamy almond butter
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. orange zest, plus 2 Tbsp. fresh orange juice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 3/4 cup walnut halves
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • A splash of Horizon Organic Milk for serving, if desired

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Combine almond butter, oil, maple syrup, orange zest and juice, and vanilla in a bowl; stir until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, combine oats, cashews, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, and salt; stir well. Pour almond butter mixture into oat mixture; stir until all dry ingredients are well-coated. Spread mixture in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet; gently press with a rubber spatula.
