Granola Recipe

I came up with a new granola recipe I like even more.  I hope you like it as much as I do.  I tasted it before it put it in the oven and was afraid it would never get to the oven . lol!  Enjoy!

Granola Recipe:
4 cups oats
1 cup almonds
1 cup pecans
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut
1/3 cup coconut oil or a combination of coconut and olive oil
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Combine all dry ingredients and stir well.
2. Add in all wet ingredients and stir well.
3. Pour into a greased pan and bake at 300 degrees for 10 minutes.  
4. Take out of the oven, stir and put back in for 10 more minutes or till golden.

I haven't tried these variations but they should work pretty well. 
To make pb granola stir in 1/2 cup pb and cut oil down to 1/8 cup.  Add no spices.

For Cherry almond use no spices and mix in almond extract with sweetener.  Add 2-3 cups dried cherries after toasted.
