Rocky Road Gorp
    Carry this rich, sweet, chunky  gorp for breakfast or a walking/riding dessert. Vary the kinds and amounts of nuts, seeds and/or dried fruit depending on your own food tolerances.

8 cups of minute or old-fashioned oats (not instant)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 cup each sunflower nuts, chopped nuts and raisins
2 sticks butter
1 cup honey 

    Set the oven to 350 degrees. Grease (or line with nonstick file)  two large jelly roll pans (18 X12) or three 9 X 13-inch pans. Mix oatmeal, sugar, cinnamon, sunflower seeds, nuts and raisins. Melt butter with the honey, drizzle over oatmeal mixture and mix well. Bake  until golden, about 12 minutes. Cool completely and crumble the mixture. Measure by the cupful or half cup and seal in snack bags. Keep cool and dry.  Makes 11 cups.
