Elimination diet

I’m not much of a cereal eater, but lately I’ve been munching on starchy store-bought cereal for a snack.  I want something a bit more substantial and simultaneously less starchy.  I made this with what I had in the pantry.

3 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup quinoa flakes (the kind used to make hot cereal)
1/3 cup evaporated cane sugar
3/4 cup cashew pieces
1 cup walnut pieces
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup canola oil
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla

Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Preheat the oven to 250F.  Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine the last 3 ingredients in a measuring cup.  Dump the wet ingredients into the dry and mix thoroughly.  Pour out onto the pan and spread thinly.  Bake for at least an hour, stirring every 15 minutes.  The finished product should be somewhat dry and toasty.  When cool, store in a jar or ziploc bag.
