Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and thoroughly mix together with rubber spatula making sure all ingredients are “wet”.
Pour out evenly on large sheet pan covered with parchment paper. Bake in a 240° oven for 1 ½ hours, stirring up and spreading out evenly, every 30 minutes. Remove and let it cool completely on rack.
