2 cups unsalted nuts (I sub the nuts out for other goodies)
2 cups sunflower seeds
1 cup sesame seeds
3 cups coconut, shredded
1 1/2 cups honey
1 1/2 cups oil (use a light oil like safflower)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
How to make it
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. F
Mix dry ingredients in a large baking pan (12 x 17-inch or comparable).
Measure out the oil into a saucepan, then measure the honey in the same measuring cup and pour into saucepan. (The honey slides out of the cup easily.) Add vanilla extract and heat just to mix.
Pour liquids over dry ingredients and mix well.
Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
Let cool before storing. You can add 1 to 2 cups of raisins or other dried fruit at this point. This is wonderful as a cereal with milk OR yogurt. Makes a great snack and trail mix. Experiment with different ingredients; just remember to keep the ratio of 7 dry to 1 liquid.
