Hornby Island Diving Housemade Granola
1 ½ tsp vanilla
¾ c melted butter or coconut oil
1 c honey or maple syrup
8 c rolled oats
½ c sesame seeds
½ c coconut
½ c sunflower seeds
(1 ½ c nuts/seeds in total, whatever you have, whatever looks good :)
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
Add AFTER baking:
2 c raisins or dried cranberries
¾ c chopped dried apricots
Preheat oven to 325°F. Cover two baking trays with parchment paper and set aside.
In a small saucepan, combine vanilla, butter, and honey and heat gently until melted and blended.
In a large mixing bowl, mix grains, nuts, and spices. Add honey mixture and blend thoroughly.
Place mixture on trays. Bake at 325°F for 30 – 45 minutes. Stir often because the outside tends to cook faster. Don’t overcook, it crispens as it cools.
When done, remove from oven, cool a bit, then add dried fruits. Cool thoroughly and store in the refrigerator.
