DIRECTIONS

  • Spread the filberts on a rimmed baking sheet, and the almonds on another; bake in a 350° oven for 5-8 minutes, or until very lightly browned; shake pans occasionally.
  • Let nuts cool; rub filberts in your hands to loosen as much of the brown exterior as possible, then blow or fan off the chaff, chop filberts and almonds coarsely (chop in a hand chopper, rather than a food processor, which may turn the nuts into butter!)
  • Blend nuts with oats, wheat germ, currants, apricots, and sugar.
  • Store in a tightly closed container at room temperature.
  • Serve in bowls with milk or cream; top with fruit if you like or pack it up to take camping or back-packing!
