This didn't get as crispy as I would like but the flavor is really good!

9 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups wheat bran (or wheat germ or oat bran)
1 c. coconut
1 c. sunflower seeds
1 c. chopped almonds
1 c. chopped pecans
1 c. chopped walnuts
1/2 c. ground flax seed
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 cup honey
1 cup canola oil
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups raisins or sweetened dried cranberries

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment or aluminum foil.

Combine the oats, wheat bran, cocunut, flax, sunflower seeds, almonds, pecans, and walnuts in a large bowl. Stir together the salt, maple syrup, honey, oil, cinnamon, and vanilla in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then pour over the dry ingredients, and stir to coat. Spread the mixture out evenly on the baking sheets.

Bake in the preheated oven until crispy and toasted, about 30 minutes. Stir once halfway through. Cool, then stir in the raisins or cranberries before storing in an airtight container.
