Good as a Cereal or Snack
8 cups/2-3 lbs Rolled Oats
½ cup Brown Sugar
½ cup Raw Sunflower Seeds
½ cup Chopped/Slivered Almonds
1/4 cup Sesame Seeds
1/4 cup Ground Flax Seed
Olive Oil (until it looks like there is enough moister in it remember you will be adding honey too)
1 tsp Cinnamon and Nutmeg (we like cinnamon so I always add more of that or whatever spices you want)
1 tbsp Vanilla
2 Cups Honey (I always use more than that, but it depends on the batch size, so add some then mix then see the consistency you will want, cereal or snack)
Mix all these items in a Big bowl until it’s all cover in oil and honey, then spread onto an ungreased cookie sheet (with sides), if you need to you can use 2 have it heaping but not to thick (usually I can get this amount onto 1 cookie sheet). Bake at 350 for 10-15 min then carefully mix, then put in for another 5-10 min, cook longer for cereal. Don’t let it get to brown I watch it pretty close because the honey will burn easy.
While that is cooking mix together in the same bowl the dried fruit you want and the amount you want.
Ideas for dried fruit (all cut up to the size you want): These are just ideas of what I use, but you can add or take away from this list whatever you like.
Chopped Dates
Shredded Coconut
Dried Cranberries
Then when the granola is done in the oven dump it back in the bowl and mix the dried fruit in, let cool and ENJOY!!
