Ingredients

European

1 ½ c

Nuts

210 g

1 c

Sunflower seeds

130 g

½ - 1 c

Raisins

82-165 g

6 c

Oatmeal (uncooked)

485 g

1 ½ c

Coconut

140 g

1 tsp

Cinnamon

1 tsp

½ tsp

Salt

½ tsp

½ tsp

Nutmeg (optional)

½ tsp

¾ c

Honey

175 ml

¼ c

Water

60 ml

½ c

Oil

120 ml

1 Tbs

Vanilla

1 Tbs


Directions

1. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl – except the raisins.

2. In a small saucepan, add the honey and water.  Heat over a medium flame, stirring until thinned and hot.  Add the oil and vanilla.

3. Remove it from the heat and pour over the dry ingredients.  Mix well.

4. Spread the granola over a large, shallow baking pan.  Bake at a very low temperature for 1 hour, stirring every 10 minutes.  Granola is done when it is crispy and all moisture has evaporated.  Remove from the oven and let it cool completely.

5. Once cooled, add the raisins, and store in an air-tight container to prevent it from turning stale.

 

Notes: This recipe makes a LOT of granola! Take special care toward the end of the heating process making sure not to burn the edges or bottom. Serve with milk, kefir, yogurt, or eat plain.

 

Variations: If a more clumped granola is desired, add more honey to the mixture.  You can also substitute mixed cereals for the oats (look in natural food stores, or in the diabetic section of supermarkets for options).Toss in some chocolate chips to sweeten up the recipe. You can alter the ingredients in about 1,000 ways to meet your taste. In addition to the substitutions above and below, you can add citrus zest (1-2 Tbs), peanut butter (¼ c) or a very ripe mashed banana (don’t use water if you do this). Always add dried fruit after baking, otherwise it becomes rock hard and may hurt your teeth.

 

Substitutions: Raisins/Any dried fruit. Chopped nuts/Any nut or seed. Nutmeg/Allspice or other spice.
