In a large bowl, mix the oats, almonds, vegetable oil, honey, vanilla, almond extract, salt, coconut, and cinnamon. Mix together to spread honey and oil evenly over oats. Use your hands if necessary.  Divide the mixture between the two pans and spread in and even layer. Bake 20 minutes, stir, and switch the position of the pans. Bake until the oats are golden and brown and the nuts are just toasted. Let cool completely on the pan. The oats crisp up as they cool. When completely cool store in plastic container. Add raisins if desired.
