This makes a lot, and I cook it in a foil turkey roasting pan.
4 cups rolled oats (not quick or instant). may also use part or all rolled wheat, rye, barley or other grains.
2 cups chopped nuts (I like pecans, but choose your favorite(s) - or use sunflower seeds, pepitas, suchlike)
2 cups chopped dried fruits - I like to combine flavors like apricot, dates, craisins, or whatever I find in my pantry. I am not that fond of raisins, though.
1/2 to 1 cup liquid sweetening. Honey for mildness, corn syrup for cheap, blackstrap molasses for nutritional punch. Or combine. Maple syrup and sorghum work well, too. Lyle's Golden syrup doesn't. can mix or match.
1/4 cup canola or safflower oil (cold pressed is best - like Hollywood brand)
1 TBS pure vanilla extract
(optional) 1 tsp cinammon or pumpkin pie spice mix.
Beat liquid ingredients together. May need to warm syrup a bit. pour over other ingredients in a large bowl or pan. put into roasting pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray (or lightly oiled). bake at 350, stirring every 10 minutes, until the toasty shade you prefer (usually around 30 - 40 minutes). cool in pan, stirring occasionally to break into small pieces. store in tighly sealed container.
