3 cups rolled oats
3 cups whole wheat ("brown") flour
1 cup grated coconut
1 cup sesame seeds (optional)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup honey
pinch of salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract (optional)
1 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
1 cup raisins (optional)

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients (except raisins) together well. You may wish to mix it with clean hands to really blend it well.

Spread in one or two large baking pans and bake at a low fire (less than 300) for about one hour. Stir occasionally and prevent over-browning. When cereal is lightly browned, turn off the heat. Allow cereal to cool right in the oven. Mix in the raisins. Store in an airtight and ant-proof container. Serve cold with milk or yogurt.

This is a flexible recipe-- you can substitute the wheat flour or sesame seeds with cracked wheat, maize meal, rice flour, or other ingredients you have available.

NOTE: If the coconut came with the liquid, you can substitute some of the honey with it.
