(recipe adapted from food network)
Heat oven to 275.
Put 1 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup of water in a saucepan and heat til sugar dissolves.
Then stir in 4 tsps. vanilla and 1 tsp. salt
Toss that liquid with 8 cups of old fashioned oats and 2 cups of some nuts (whatever you've got that sounds good. i've added flax seed here too).
Spread this all out on 2 cookie sheets and bake for an hour.
once it is all golden-crunchy, take it out and add some dried fruit if you want. i usually have raisins.
let it cool, then either eat it or store it for later.
i love this stuff. with yogurt. yum.
