This is one of my favorite foods to make. Very healthy while maintaining a tasty flavor. Great with milk, over fruit salad, or in a parfet.
8 Cups oats
1 Cup raw shredded coconut
1 Cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 Cup raw wheat germ
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 Cup raw chopped nuts
1/3 Cup boiling water
1/2 Cup honey (3/4 Cup for sweeter)
3/4 Cup cold pressed virgin coconut oil
Optional: vanilla or almond extract
Thoroughly combine both mixtures, then DRY in the oven 1 1/2 – 2 hours @250 degrees. Set on several cookie sheets, turning mixture every 15-20 minutes. The goal is to dry the mixture, not bake and brown it.
Granola is especially to taste. Add or subtract anything you dont like. I add dried fruits (cranberries, blueberries, dates, banana chips, etc AFTER the baking and cooling. Adding before makes the fruits too dry and hard to chew.
