Chipeta Granola

Ingredients: 

8 cups oatmeal
2 cups sunflower seeds
2 cups grated coconut
2 cups cashews (or other nuts)
1 1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup canola oil
1 Tbs vanilla

Optional:
Fresh berries
Milk
Vanilla Yogurt

Preparation: 

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Combine honey, oil, and vanilla in a 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup. Microwave mixture until hot and bubbling. Place all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Pour the honey mixture over and stir until well mixed. Spread granola on two cookie sheets. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring carefully every 15 minutes as granola will brown on the sides and the bottom. Cook for an additional 10 minutes. Let cool.

(Tip: when granola is cooling, be sure to constantly stir/break it up, or you’ll end up with a granola bar instead of granola).
