Vegetable Oil Spray
4 c Old-fashioned (not quick cooking) rolled oats
1 c Oat Bran
2 c whole almonds, coursely chopped
3/4 c Vegetable Oil
3/4 c Honey
1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp pure almond extract
1 c Nonfat dry milk powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 c raisin (optional)

Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and heat the oven to 325F. Spray two rimmed baking sheets with vegetable oil spray. In a large bowl, mix the oats, oat bran, and almonds. In a smaller bowl, whisk the oil, honey, vanilla, almond extract, dry milk powder and salt. Pour the mixture (it will be gloppy) over the oats and stir, with your hands or a spoon, until well combined.
Divide the mixture between the two oiled baking sheets and spread in an even layer. Bake for 20 minutes, stir, and switch the positions of the pans. Bake until the oats are golden brown and the nuts look well toasted, another 10 to 20 minutes; don't overcook. Let cool completely in the pans. The oats may feel soft but will crisp as they cool. When completely cool, stir in the raisins, if using. Store in an airtight container.

Note: I also add pecans to this recipe. It also doubles well.
