Homemade Granola

This is my favourite Granola recipe. I used to make it for years until my kids wanted the cereals they saw on TV. Now I have made it again and it is a big hit! Double the recipe, if you have a larger family.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Mix in a large bowl:

200g large flake oats
50g sunflower seeds
50g sesame seeds
50g unsweetened coconut
50g almonds ( ground or sliced etc.)
1/4 tsp Cinnamon

Take a cookie sheet and drop 3 Tbsp honey and 3 Tbsp sunflower oil ( or another oil with a neutral taste) on it. Put the sheet in the oven for a few minutes until the honey is runny and slightly bubbly.

Take the cookie sheet out of the oven and pour the oat mix onto it. Using a spatula mix the oat with the oil and honey until everything is well covered. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes until the granola is lightly browned.

While it is still hot pour the granola back into the bowl and add 100g raisins and/ or dried cranberries. Mix well.

Packaged in a pretty jar this would make a nice gift as well.
