Preheat oven to 300F

In a large bowl, toss together oats, rice krispies, brown sugar, slivered almonds, salt and cinnamon, and coconut.

In a small saucepan, stir together honey and canola oil – cook until warm over low heat, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat – stir in vanilla and chocolate until smooth. Drizzle over the oat mixture –  gently mix chocolate mixture and oat mixture until combined. Add a small amount more of honey if necessary.
