Put the pan into the preheated oven.
Stir the mixture about every half hour to ensure even browning.
After approx 1.5 hours, check to see whether it's done. The oats and nuts should be evenly golden brown and crunchy. If they aren't, leave it to bake for longer, checking regularly. Remove from oven.
