Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325° F and lightly oil an 8-inch square baking dish.

Step 5

Cook and stir for 5 to 7 minutes to develop the flavors.

Step 6

Spoon the mixture over the toasted oats, pumpkin seeds, and nuts and mix well to combine.

Step 7

Transfer to the prepared baking dish and press gently so the mixture is evenly distributed.
