5 cups Oatmeal
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup honey
1 cup of nuts (your choice: sunflower, peanut, cashew, almonds or a mix of all the above.)
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup flax meal
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
1 teaspoon of salt

you may also add some of the variations from this page for a change of pace, or to use up your odds and ends in your cupboard.

Mix all ingredients in a very large bowl till well mixed. Spread on a cookie sheet and place in a 250 degree oven and bake for 2 1/2 hours. Allow to cool, then store in a Ziploc baggie. This makes about enough to fill two gallon size Ziplocs.
