Granola

Number of Servings: 18

Ingredients

    5 Cups Old-fashioned rolled oats
    1-1/2 cups flaked almonds (I used slivered)
    1 cup raw sunflower seeds
    1/2 cup raw sesame seeds
    1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
    1/2 cup honey or pure maple syrup
    1/2 cup EVOO
    1/2 t. Salt

Tips

NOTE:
*The low slow cooking is better for the valuable oils in the nuts and grains.
* If you like raisins or chopped dried fruit, add in the last hour of baking (or even afterwards) so they don't overcook and get bitter or too hard


Directions

1. In a large bowl mix together all the dry ingredients. Whisk the honey and/or syrup, oil, and salt until well blended. Pour over the dry ingredients and mix until all is pleasantly sticky. (mine never got really sticky, just mixed until evenly coated)
2. Spread in your largest baking pan (or two) and bake at 225* for 3 hours. Stir and return to the oven for another hour. (if your oven runs hot, your granola will be overcooked by now. Reduce the heat next time.)
3. Turn off oven and leave granola in oven for 4 hours or overnight. When granola is completely cool store in an airtight container in a cool place.
