Granola Recipe

What to do with all that Oatmeal Granola

This is an awesome Granola recipe thats great for using up all that Oatmeal you may have in your stockpile. You can also add raisins or dried fruit to it, but wait until after you bake it to do so.

Adapted from orangett.blogspot.com & Nigella Lawson’s Feast


Dry ingredients:
5 cups rolled oats
2 cups nuts ( almonds, peanuts, mixed – your preference)
1 cup hulled raw sunflower seeds
2-4 tbsp Flax seeds, lightly ground (I use the magic bullet)
¾ cup light brown sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. sea salt or regular

Wet ingredients:
¾ cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/3 cup corn syrup
¼ cup honey
2 Tbsp. safflower oil, smart balance oil or vegetable oil

Preheat the oven to 300°F.

In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients and mix well. Add the remaining wet ingredients and mix well to coat. Spread mixture into a large baking sheet.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until evenly golden brown. Stir every 10 minutes to help it cook evenly. When it’s ready, remove from the oven, stir well – this will keep it from cooling into a hard, solid sheet – and set aside to cool. The finished granola may still feel slightly soft when it comes out of the oven, but it will crisp as it cools.

Scoop cooled granola into to a large zipper-lock plastic bag or other airtight container. Store in the refrigerator indefinitely.

Yield: about 10 cups
