3 cups rolled oats
A bag of a blend of pistachios, almonds, cashews, and peanuts (or 1 cup pistachios, 1 cup slivered almonds, 1 cup cashews). I remove the peanuts from the bagged blend to make it a healthier recipe. The bagged blend also prevents having to shell the pistachios.
3/4 cup shredded sweet coconut
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup golden raisins
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, coconut, and brown sugar. Smash the brown sugar if it’s lumpy.
In a separate bowl, combine maple syrup, oil, and salt. Pour that mixture over the the oats and nuts mixture and stir. Spread it on a greased sheet pan. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to achieve an even color.
Remove from oven and let it cool a little bit.
Add golden raisins, mix until evenly distributed. Enjoy some and place the rest of it in an air-tight container.
