Oven Baked Mashed Potato Cakes
1. Pre-heat your oven to 300°F (150°C). In a large rimmed baking pan toss the oats, sunflower and quinoa seeds.
2. Pour honey over the oat mixture and stir to combine.
3. Add the chopped pecans and stir well.
4. Bake at 300°F (150°C) for about 30 minutes. Stir regularly so the mixture does not burn. The granola should be slightly golden and fragrant.
