~ can you stay for DINNER?

3 c. rolled oats
1 c. coconut
1 c. sliced almonds
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/3 c. maple syrup
1 t. vanilla

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine oats, coconut, and almonds in a large bowl; set aside.
Heat oil, syrup, and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium heat until heated through, whisking frequently.  Pour oil mixture over the oat mixture, stirring until oats are completely coated in oil mixture.
