- 2 cups mixed berries such as blackberries and blueberries
- 2 pineapples sliced top to bottom score the inside.
- Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
- Combine the oats, pecans, sunflower seeds and peanuts in a large bowl. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the sugar, honey, oil, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and 1/4 cup water. Pour the liquid mixture over the oat mix and stir until combined. Pour onto two baking sheets and spread evenly.
