Ingredients
Optional
  • 1 cup unsweetened organic coconut flakes
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or slivered almonds
  • 1 cup chopped organic dried fruit, raisins, or chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Mix together the oats, oil or butter, honey, maple syrup, salt, chia seeds if desired, and vanilla.
  2. Distribute evenly into 2-3 large baking dishes or roasting pans and bake at 225-250 for a couple of hours, stirring every 20-30 minutes, until everything is dry and crunchy. It should be lightly golden, but not brown. A few minutes before you think it's done you can add the coconut and nuts and toast them a little too.
  3. Remove from oven and let cool completely before adding chopped dried fruit or chocolate chips.
  4. Store in an airtight container for 2-3 weeks. If you'd like it to last longer you can leave out the fruit till later and put some in the freezer!
