I gathered an unknown amount of these things in the bulk section:
- Rolled oats
- Flax seeds
- Raw almonds
- Sunflower seeds
- Pumpkin seeds
While that's baking, line a baking dish with wax paper. Spray all of the wax paper with cooking spray. Set it aside.
On the stove, combine two cups of brown sugar with 4 tablespoons of butter, 2 teaspoons of vanilla, 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, and a squirt of blue agave nectar (honey would work too).
Stir constantly while heating over medium heat until it becomes melty and bubbly.
Without burning yourself (important), dump the toasted bits into a bowl. Dump the sugar-glue on top. Mix REALLY well.
If you have willpower, let it sit on the counter for two hours or so until it cools. If you're me, wait until the pan gets mostly cool and throw it into the fridge to harden. Regardless, when it is cool to the touch, either break it or use a knife to cut it into bars. Then, use a towel to wipe up the drool.
It is amazing. No joke. Thank me later.
