Granola Cereal

I made granola cereal and it rocked! I started out with a granola recipe and then changed it. It is really rich so I was thinking about stretching it by mixing it with plain corn/bran flakes.

4 cups oatmeal(I used instant that was at its expiration date)
3/4 cup pecans 
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed 
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/4 cup shredded coconuts 
3 tablespoons butter 
3 tablespoons oil 
1/4 cup honey(spray the measuring cup with Pam and it will slide right out)
2 tablespoons sugar 
5 teaspoons vanilla 

Preheat oven to 325 and adjust racks to the middle. Spray 2 9x13 pans with Pam. Mix first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine butter, oil, honey and sugar in a sauce pan and heat until melted, add vanilla. Pour the liquid over the oat mixture and stir well. Spread on sheets. Bake until golden brown 15-20 minutes. Keep an eye on this one because it will burn. 
And you are welcome,
