Granola

Granola

4 cups of old-fashioned oats
2/3 cup sunflower seeds
½ cup sliced almonds
½ cup pecans
¼ cup coconut chips (large shreds, unsweetened)
¼ cup wheat germ
¼ cup wheat bran
¼ cup peanut oil
½ cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract

Spray a non-stick roasting pan and mix all dry ingredients in it. Drizzle with oil. Next, mix the honey and extracts in a separate container. (Measure honey first, then oil in the same measuring cup. Honey will flow better.) Drizzle the honey mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Always turn the browned parts in and under to expose untoasted areas. Timing may vary with the oven – just toast until all parts are golden brown. Allow to cool completely before storing in an air-tight container.
