Homemade Granola

 Granola Recipe:

I got this recipe from my good friend Catherine. It is so good, you'll never go back to store-bought granola ever again.

Dry ingredients:

  • 3 cups (300 grams) of old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
  • 3/4 cup (75 grams) of sliced or slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup (45 grams) of raw sunflower seeds.
  • 1/2 cup (45 grams) of raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 tbsp of ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp of salt

Liquid ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp of Avacado oil or canola oil
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) of pure maple syrup (preferably Grade A Dark Amber)

Preheat oven to 325 F or 165 C. and place the rack in the center of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients. and give it a good stir. Mix together the wet ingredients and then pour over the dry ingredients while stirring to make sure everything gets coated well.

Spread on the baking sheets, I use two baking sheets, to get more even "browning", but one will do. Bake for 30-45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes or so to get more even browning. The browner the granola gets the crisper it will be.

Once finished remove from oven and set on a cooling rack. At this point, it may still be a bit sticky but it will crisp up as it cools. Once completely cooled, move it to an airtight container. If I will store it for a long time, I vacuum pack it. Makes about 5 cups.

Once cooled you can add cranberries, raisins, apricots, cherries or any dried fruit
