Recipe adapted from In Praise of Leftovers.
Mix together in one extra-large bowl, or two large bowls:
- 9 cups rolled oats
- 2 cups unsweetened coconut
- 1 1/2 cups walnuts
- 1 cup pumpkin seeds
- 3/4 cup sliced almonds
- 1/2 cup ground flax
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
Warm over low heat:
- 1 cup canola oil
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup honey
- Then add 2 T vanilla extract to oil & sugar
Pour oil mixture over oats and mix thoroughly. Divide granola in two separate batches. Bake at 350* for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
When cool, add approximately 1-2 cups chopped dried fruit of your choice (optional).
Store in an air-tight container to enjoy over cereal, yogurt…or by the handful.
