1 32 oz. package of slow cooked oats (we use Quaker or a generic)
1.5 cups vegetable oil
1.5 cups maple syrup (or honey)
1 TBS cinnamon
1 TBS vanilla extract
1 TSP salt
(optional, 1 cup nuts)
Mix all ingredients, then bake at 350 in batches in a thin layer on cookie sheets. We bake for 10 minutes and then stir, then bake in 5 minute intervals. I try to take it out before it browns and let it cool, to make sure it is crisp enough. We store it in a large jar on the counter and everyone can help themselves. We eat it with milk or greek yogurt. The kids seem to pick out the nuts, so I have stopped putting them in, but I think I will toast some nuts to keep on the side for myself.
