Homemade granola cereal or granola bars.

Recipe Ingredients for Granola Cereal

3 1/2 cups rolled oats (if you want bars use steel cut oats so it will stick together better)
1 cup raw sliced almonds
1 cup raw cashew pieces (or walnuts or pecans)
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (I could only find unsweetened at Earth Fare, which is similar to Whole Foods)
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon grated or ground nutmeg
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup honey
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Granola Cereal

  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Cover a rectangular baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Mix the dry oats, almonds, cashews, coconut, seeds and spices together in a large mixing bowl.

  3. Heat the butter and honey together in a small saucepan over low heat. Once the butter melts stir in the vanilla.

  4. Pour the hot liquids over the dry ingredients and stir together with a rubber spatula until evenly coated.

  5. Spread mixture onto prepared pan in one even layer. Bake for 75 minutes.

  6. The granola will become crisp as it cools at which point you can break into pieces (if making bars) or break it up into small chunks by pounding it in a zip lock bag (if making cereal). Store in air tight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
