About the Recipe
6 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups flaked coconut

1 cup sliced/slivered almonds
1 cup pecans, chopped
1 cup salted, shelled sunflower seeds
1 cup pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds)
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup golden raisins
1 cup demerara sugar (Demerara sugar is produced from sugarcane and consists of large grains which provide a nice, crunchy texture)

2 tablespoons real vanilla
In a very large metal bowl, combine the first ten ingredients and mix well.
In a medium saucepan, combine the coconut oil, water and real vanilla. Heat until oil is melted and well combined.

Remove from the oven and cool completely.
Store in an airtight container.
Enjoy as breakfast cereal, as a yogurt topping or just as a dry snack. Delicious!
