Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Granola

3 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup raw sliced almonds
1/2 cup raw pecans
1 cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup raw sunflower 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
1/2 cup raisins

Recipe Directions for Homemade Granola

  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.
