Granola


Mmmm, this is baking as I write this and it smells heavenly!

This recipe is the result of surfing the web and combining the ingredients that appeal to me from the myriad of granola recipes available. Well, I can't really say all because I'm sure there are many many more out there.

Feel free to add and subtract ingredients to your liking and personalize your own granola recipe.

What do you like in your granola?

Granola Recipe

2 cups rolled oats (not instant)
1 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ or ground flax seeds
1/2 - 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup dried fruit (ideas: raisins, dried apricots, craisins and dried apple)
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup honey

Mix the dry ingredients, except the dried fruit, in a large bowl.
Measure oil into the measuring cup and swirl it around before pouring into bowl.
Then measure out the honey in the same, unwashed cup. The oil will help the honey exit the cup.
Toss everything together until evenly coated and then spread out evenly in a baking pan.
Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, turning and stirring it with a spatula every ten minutes or so until it is an even golden brown.
After it is finished cooking, return the baked granola to the mixing bowl, add the dried fruit and stir to combine. Let cool at room temperature. Store in a tightly sealed container.
