4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 1/2 cups sliced almonds
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup local, raw honey
1 tsp vanilla
Dried fruit (whatever you prefer)
1. Mix the first 5 ingredients together in a large bowl.
2. Warm the oil, honey and vanilla in a saucepan over low heat.
TIP: Measure out the oil first, then the honey (the oil will coat the measuring cup and the honey will slip right out).
3. Pour the oil/honey mixture over the rolled oat mixture. Mix well and spread onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes at 300 degrees. Stir every 10 minutes.
4. Allow to cool. Mix in dried fruit if you desire. Eat and enjoy!
