Marshmallowed Granola Brittle

I found the seeds of this recipe on a bag of marshmallows, which was a take on rice crispy squares, but I found that the dish turned much more interesting in this avatar.

Oats - 1-1/2 cup
Almonds,Walnuts,Cranberries,Dates,Raisins,Sunflower seeds - 1 cup
Vanilla essence - 1 teaspoon
Oil/butter - 1 tablespoon
Marshmallows - 1 cup

Mix oats and oil, toast well. I used a wok for this. Really works well. Roast the nuts separately.
Mix the oats, vanilla essence and the dry fruits well. Add the marshmallows over the mixture. Microwave for 1 minute on high, the marshmallow will puff up nicely. Bring it out of the microwave oven and mix quickly before the marshmallows set. Spread the mixture on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, about 1/4 inch thick. Let it stand at room temperature until the mixture cools completely. Break into pieces and enjoy!

This makes for a slightly sweet brittle. If you'd like it sweeter, use more marshmallows.
