I've updated this recipe - all ingredients can be obtained from Trader Joe's

6 cups old fashioned rolled oats**
2/3 c coconut flakes***
3 cups total pecans, walnuts, cashews, almonds or other seeds and nuts****
3 tsp or more cinnamon (optional)
1/3 c brown sugar
1/3  c coconut oil (heat to liquify)
1/3  c maple syrup

**One Trader Joe's container of oats is about 6 cups
*** one TJ's pkg unsweetened   coconut flakes
**** or 1 pkg TJ's raw mixed nuts

Add all the dry ingredients to a large bowl.  Pour coconut oil and maple syrup into a cup and drizzle over the oat mixture while stirring.  Mix thoroughly.  Toast on a cookie sheet at 275 degrees F (oven) for about 1 to  1-1/2 hours, stirring every 20 - 30 minutes until toasted to your liking.  Cool and put into an airtight container.  Dried fruits are optional.  I use 1/3 cup of granola with fresh blueberries, strawberries, and almond milk when I prepare my breakfast.
