3 cups rolled oats (old-fashioned oats, not quick cooking)
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup sunflower seeds
3/4 cup shredded sweet coconut
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons canola oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
dried fruit, optional
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, optional
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
In another bowl, combine honey, oil, and salt. Drizzle the honey mixture into the bowl with the oats and mix it all together. Pour onto a large, rimmed sheet pan. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, stirring every 10 or 15 minutes. It should be golden brown. Be careful not to burn it.
Remove from oven and cool completely. Add raisins or dried fruit, if you like, and mix until combined. Let cool. Store in an airtight container.
You can use any nuts you like or leave them out, use maple syrup instead of honey. This is just a basic recipe, make it any way you like. Add vanilla extract, add some orange zest, cloves, anything goes!
