    Making Trail Mix out of your Granola:

    Heat oven to about 300 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Mix the following ingredients to your homemade granola.

    3/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans
    3/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
    3/4 cup unsalted peanuts
    3/4 cup sliced
    1 1/2 cups flaked or shredded coconut
    1/2 cup sunflower seeds (meat only)
    1/2 cup wheat germ
    1 tbsp ground cinnamon
    1 tbsp salt
    2 (14-ounce) can Sweetened Condensed Milk, fat free
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    1 cup banana chips
    1/2 cup dark raisins
    1/2 cup golden raisins
    1/2 cup dried cherries
    1/2 cup dried apricots, diced
    1/2 cup dried cranberries


Gently mix all ingredients except fruit together. Spread evenly on cookie sheet (you may have to use two cookie sheets), and bake for 50 minutes to an hour. You will need to turn and stir the mixture every 15 minutes to ensure even cooking/drying. When it's done, let it cool on the cookie sheet(s). When it's cool, break it up into chunks and add dried fruit. Sort into containers, bags, etc.

Tip: I have found that it's best to freeze what you're not going to use within the week because of the evaporated milk. I keep my weekly stash in the fridge. It's great for road trips, hikes, camping, gifts, etc. Also, I sometimes heat peanut butter in the microwave to soften it and replace the oil with it. I would suggest if you do this, to double the amount. Separate into about 30 1/2 cup servings. Keep servings small as this is not meant to be a meal, but a high-energy snack.
