1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup coconut flakes
3/4 cup sultanas

Pre heat oven to 150 degrees Celsius.
Combine honey, vanilla, cinnamon and water in a jug and microwave on high for a minute or until the mixture is well combined.
In a very large bowl combine the oats with the wet ingredients and stir until thoroughly mixed.
Spread this mixture out onto two very large baking trays. Bake for about 25 minutes until the mixture is turning a light golden brown. Several times whilst cooking, the oats should be removed from the oven and stirred so they bake evenly. Allow to cool.
