  • cups rolled oats not instant
  • cups sliced almonds
  • 1 cup pecans optional
  • cinnamon and/or nutmeg to taste optional
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup honey Dad prefers Miller's Wildflower
  • 1 cup oil I use coconut oil, dad uses vegetable oil


  1. In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients together. Combine the liquid ingredients in a measuring cup (microwave for 45-60 seconds to soften the honey), then stir into oat/nut mixture until evenly coated.
  2. Spoon onto a large, flat baking sheet (lightly oil pan if not non-stick) and bake at 350°F for 45 minutes. Stir well every 15 minutes. After 45 minutes, take a small amount out, let it cool for a minute, and test for doneness. If still soft, bake an additional 8 minutes, and test again. Do not overcook.
  3. Let cool, then store in an airtight container.
