Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly oil a large rimmed baking sheet.

Combine oats, wheat bran, coconut, almonds, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a large bow. Stir well.

Stir honey, oil, milk, and vanilla in a small saucepan over low heat until misture fizzes around the edges. Pour over oat mixture and stir well.
