Homemade Trail Mix

Doesn't this look delicious???? I think this is a great gift idea and something I could bring to work to share with my co-workers. I bet it wouldn't last long! Here's the recipe...

2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup coconut
1 cup whole almonds
1/4 cup flax seeds
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup canola or olive oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup cheerios
1 2/3 cup dried apricots, chopped
2/3 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.In a medium bowl, combine the oats, coconut, honey, oil, sugar, and salt. Stir until well coated. Add the flax and sunflower seeds. Mix well. Spread mixture out on a large baking sheet. Bake for 35 minutes, stirring every 5-10 minutes.Remove the oat mixture from the oven and allow to completely cool. In a large bowl, stir in cheerios, apricots, and chocolate chips. Store in an airtight container.
