Heat the oven to 300 degrees. On a baking sheet with sides, combine the oats, peanuts, almonds, pumpkinseeds, amaranth and cashews. Bake for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine the oil and honey, stirring to thoroughly combine. Drizzle over the warm oat mixture, then stir until everything is evenly coated. Return to the oven and bake, stirring every few minutes, until the mixture is a rich golden brown and the nuts smell toasty - about 20 minutes. Cool, then store in a tightly closed container.
