Makes:about 4-5 cups of granola
I love yogurt, granola and fresh fruit – as breakfast, snack or anytime. Being frustrated with the high fat (and who knows what ingredients) in store-bought granolas, I blended elements of several recipes and came up with this fast, easy and most importantly, delicious homemmade granola. Enjoy!
3 cups rolled oats
3/4 cups sliced almonds
1/2-1 cup shredded coconut
1/3-1/2 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup milled/ground flax seed
1 cup mixed dried fruit (I highly suggest dried cherries and dried mango)
1/2 tsp salt
7 tbsp honey
3 tsp brown (or demara) sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 325C.
Mix dry ingredients. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, melt honey, butter, brown sugar over low heat.
When melted, toss with dry ingredients.
Lay out on baking pan; bake for 15 minutes (or a bit longer if you like it drier and crunchier)
Let cool. As it cools, mix in chopped dried fruit.
Stores for 2 weeks in airtight container.
