4 1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup sunflower seeds*
1 cup coconut*
1 cup wheat germ*
1 cup slivered almonds or chopped pecans/walnuts*
1/2 cup sesame seeds*
1/2 cup oil (I used sunflower)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
Mix together dry and wet ingredients. Spread mixture onto two oiled (or use parchment paper) jelly roll pans (cookie sheets with sides) and bake at 300 degrees F for about 30 minutes or until done as desired. Stir every 15 minutes or so for even baking. After it has sufficiently cooled, put into airtight container.
Optional: After baking, you can add up to 1 cup of raisins/currants or chopped dates/apricots* stirring well to combine.
*Note: I always use raw, unsalted, unsweetened coconut, wheat germ, dried fruit, nuts and seeds.
Photo: this batch of granola was made using chopped walnuts and raisins. I believe I also added a bit more rolled oats as well.
