There are probably as many granola recipes as there are people making granola! Here is mine:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
6 c old fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking oats)
1 c raw unsalted sunflower seeds
1 c chopped nuts
1 c unsweetened coconut
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Mix the following together then pour over the oat mixture and stir to coat thorougly (I mix by hand):
1/2 c coconut oil (or melted butter or oil)
1/2 c honey
Spread the mixture in a thin layer in shallow pans (I use 2 large pizza pans). Bake for 15 minutes, stirring with a spatula if the edges brown faster than the center of the pan. Rotate pans from top to bottom oven rack and back 8-10 more minutes, until everything is toasted golden. Remove from oven, stir around in the pans so it won’t stick as the granola cools. When cooled, spoon into a container with a lid to store. You can also add grated orange peel, raisins or other dried fruit after baking. Great as a breakfast cereal with fresh fruit, and as a topping on baked fruit or on yogurt. You can also press the raw mixture into a pie plate and use as you would a graham cracker pie crust.
If a recipe lists an ingredient and it appears in RED TYPE, you can learn more about that item in the alphabetical list on the page titled INGREDIENTS, in the page tabs at the top of this home page. These red words are not hot links, you need to go to the ingredients page via the page tab.
