1 cup almonds (any style you like)

1 cup cashews

1 cup walnuts or pecans

1 cup shredded or chipped coconut

3 cups rolled oats

1-2 tablespoons of cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt if desired and none of the nuts are salted

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1/4 cup vegetable oil (olive oil preferred) + oil for sheet pans

1/2 cup syrup

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.

In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients except the raisins.

In a small bowl, mix all the liquid ingredients.

Mix together both mixtures in the large bowl.

Pour dollop of oil on each of 2 large sheet pans and spread evenly (I just use my hands)

Pour mixed ingredients onto the sheet pans. Bake for 45 minutes.

Remove from oven, loosen from sheet pans with spatula, cool, mix in raisins, and transfer to storage containers.
