1 5oz. can ice cream nut topping mixture (optional)


  1. Combine brown sugar, honey, and water. Bring to a boil, remove from the stove, add vanilla and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. In separate bowl, combine oats and coconut; pour out onto a sprayed or greased, large, baking pan, and bake in 325 degree oven until nice and toasty brown, stirring mixture every few minutes so it doesn’t burn.

  4. Add liquid mixture to oat mixture; toss well again.
  5. Re-spray your baking pan. Place mixture back into your baking pan and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. Stir frequently.
  6. Remove from oven and cool.
  7. Place in a large container. Keeps well in the refrigerator for two weeks.
