For my cousin who dislikes morning mush and all other Little Rascals appreciators.
4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup sliced almonds or another shape, same size is better
1 cup raw not roasted sunflowers
1/2 cup raw sesame seeds if possible (wasn't for me today)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup veggie or olive oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons corn syrup (optional)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Big handful dried apricots chopped
2 big handfuls dried cranberries
Any dried fruit you like
Any size chocolate chips you like – 1/2 to 1 cup
Mix all dry ingredients. Bring oil and syrup to a simmer in small pot. Add corn syrup and vanilla to pot. Turn off heat. Mix wet ingredients with dry. Let soak 10 minutes. Spread on baking paper on baking sheet. Cook for 40 minutes or longer for more toasty tasting granola. Let cool and add the extras.
Eat – B

love to know what temp you used to bake this. Lyn
Sorry for the delay…my oversight! 300 degrees, 40-45 minutes and I like to line the baking sheet. Have a great day!
This is awesome. My husband is over the moon. I think I will make it for Christmas gifts for the special “givers” in my life. Thank you so much. Lyn
My pleasure – I’m so glad you’re going to try it!
