This stuff is addicting! I don't remember where I got the recipe, but I have been making this since I was a teenager. The measurements for the oats and coconut are just guidelines; you can adjust it to your liking or what you have on hand. Let me know how you like it.

I used 6 cups of oats, 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, 1 cup slivered almonds but I skipped the sesame seeds & raisins. Once it was baked, I added the traditional dates to half and dried pineapple to the other half for a tropical granola. We enjoyed the cereal but even though I baked it for 20 minutes, it never got crunchy. I also felt the flavor would have been a little better if I had used butter instead of oil. However, one of my kids and my mother preferred the softer texture and lighter flavor so I guess it is just a matter of opinion. :o) Thanks for sharing!
