IntroductionFrom Good Food, Great Medicine From Good Food, Great Medicine
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
*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
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.
