Mmmm it's delicious!! And healthy... and multi-purposed... and really yummy. Okay, enough. I got this recipe from and adapted it a little bit.  Feel free to use your own combo of nuts and dried fruit but this is what I did:

4 c. rolled oats
1 1/4 c. chopped walnuts + 1/4 c. chopped hazelnuts (because I was using up the rest of them)
1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
dash of sea salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. coconut oil
1/4 c. honey
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1 c. craisins + 1/2 c. raisins (to use up the rest of them)

Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl and set aside.  Heat up the coconut oil and honey on the stove until smooth.  Remove from heat and add vanilla.  Pour over dry ingredients and mix until evenly coated.  Spread in a 15" x 10" jelly roll pan and bake at 300 degrees for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.  Mix in dried fruit, let cool.  Can be kept in freezer for up to 3 months, or at room temp for a week.
