Try this wonderful combination of nuts and seed covered with honey and baked to a deliciously baked Granola. Homemade Granola is simply a mixture of rolled oats, nuts, seeds, and spices that are mixed with oil (or melted butter) and maple syrup and then baked until golden brown.

Cooking Recipe

Ingredients:
3 cups (300 grams) old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
3/4 cup (75 grams) sliced or slivered almonds
1/2 cup (45 grams) raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup (45 grams) raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 tbsp (5 grams) wheat germ (optional)
1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp canola oil or 2 tbsp (28 grams) unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup (120 ml) pure maple syrup (preferably Grade A Dark Amber)
1 cup dried fruits (cranberries, cherries, apricots, dates, figs, and/or raisins) (optional)

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 325°F (165°C) and place rack in the center of the oven. Either butter or line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl combine the rolled oats, nuts, seeds, wheat germ, ground cinnamon, and salt.

2. In a small bowl, stir together the oil (or melted butter), and maple syrup. Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients and toss together, making sure all the dry ingredients are coated with the liquid.

3. Spread onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 30 - 45 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally so the mixture browns evenly. (The browner the granola gets (without burning) the crunchier the granola will be.) Place on a wire rack to cool.

4. You will notice that the granola may still be sticky when it is removed from the oven but it will become crisp and dry as it cools.

5. Make sure to break up any large clumps of granola while the mixture is still warm. Once the granola has completely cooled, store in an airtight container or plastic bag in the refrigerator. It will keep for several weeks.

Note: Once the granola has cooled completely you can add a variety of dried fruits; cherries, cranberries, raisins, and apricots are popular choices.
