Easy Homemade Granola

What you need: 

1 cup sunflower seeds (hulls removed)
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup almonds (slivered or chopped)
3 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar or apple juice concentrate, mixed with 1/2 cup water
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 to 4 tablespoons natural maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup dried fruit, such as raisins, apricot pieces, cherries, or cranberries

What you do: 

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2) In a skillet containing no oil or liquid, combine the seeds and nuts. Heat over a low flame, stirring frequently, just until you start smelling a toasty warm aroma. (Keep watching and don't let them burn.) You can also toast them for 2 minutes in a pan in a toaster oven set on a low setting.
3) In a large bowl, combine the toasted seeds and nuts with the remaining ingredients, except dried fruit. Spread the mixture onto 2 cookie sheets and bake for about 20 minutes, or until golden, turning the mixture frequently with a spatula or a wooden spoon while baking. Remove from oven and leave granola on pan while cooling. Add dried fruit to granola and stir to combine. Store in an airtight container.

Really tasty! Doubled the cinnamon and clumped some of it together to make extra crunchy chunks and it held really well. Definitely making again.

this was really easy to make. i used some puffed brown rice cereal for some of the oats (i was low on oats) and cut the sugar in half. i'll report back when DR eats some - i told her i would make her granola so we would stop buying $$$ cereals!  ;)b
