That said, I know that nuts are good for me. Almonds especially, are an amazing snack that many of my fellow educators stash to eat in small amounts throughout the day. I need something like that. So I am going to teach myself to like nuts. Here is my first attempt!!
1 cup(s) uncooked old fashioned oats
⅔ cup(s) dried cherries, chopped
¼ cup(s) slivered almonds
¼ teaspoon table salt (I used Kosher)
1 tablespoon Land O Lakes Stick Light Butter, or similar product, melted (I used whipped--same points)
¼ cup(s) honey

In a large bowl, stir together rolled oats, cherries, almonds and salt. Drizzle with butter and honey and toss thoroughly.
Spread mixture evenly on sheet pan. Bake, stirring occasionally to ensure even browning, about 20 to 25 minutes; let cool. Yields about 1/3 cup per serving. 8 servings
