4-5 cups old-fashioned (large flake) oats
2 cups chopped, sliced or slivered almonds, pecans and/or walnuts
1/2 cup shredded coconut (optional)
1/4-1/2 cup seeds (such as sesame, sunflower or pumpkin)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup honey, Roger's Golden Syrup or maple syrup
1/4 cup canola oil
1-2 tsp. cinnamon
1-2 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. vanilla or coconut extract
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2-1 cup dried cherries, raisins or slivered apricots (optional)

1

Preheat the oven to 325F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment.

2

In a large bowl, mix the oats, nuts, coconut and seeds. In a small bowl or measuring cup, stir together the brown sugar, honey, oil, cinnamon, turmeric, vanilla and salt. Pour over the oat mixture and stir until well coated.

3

Spread out onto the baking sheet, making clumps by squeezing some of it together if you like. Bake for 20-30 minutes, stirring two or three times, until golden. Remove from the oven and stir in the dried fruit, if you’re using it.

4

Cool completely, then package in jars or sealed bags. Makes about 6 cups (1 1/2 L).
