2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups dried fruit, such as raisins, currants, golden raisins, blueberries,
cranberries, or banana chips
* Preheat the oven to 300ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
* In a medium saucepan, combine the soy butter, honey, oil, vanilla, and cinnamon. Place over low heat and stir until the mixture is smooth.
* In a medium bowl, combine the oats and salt. Add the wet mixture to the oats and stir well; use your hands if needed.
