Chelley’s Favorite Granola
I make this granola all the time! I usually use peanuts and honey, but i have used raw mixed nuts and in today’s I used cashews. I put in Chia Seeds instead of sesame seed because of their nutritional value.
- 2 cups regular rolled oats
- 1/2 cup flaked coconut
- 1/2 cup coarsely chopped slivered or sliced almonds, or chopped peanuts
- 1/2 cup shelled sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup sesame seed (or Chia Seeds)
- 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
- 1/3 cup cooking oil
Combine the oats, coconut, almonds or peanuts, sunflower seeds and sesame or chia seeds. Combine honey or syrup and oil; stir into oat mixture. Spread evenly in a greased 15x10x1 inch baking pan. Bake in a 300 degree oven for 30-35 minutes or til lightly browned: stirring after 20 minutes.
Remove from oven; immediately turn out onto a large piece of foil. Cool: break into clumps. Cover tightly and store at room temperature for up to two weeks. For longer storage, seal in freezer bags and freeze.
