Homemade Granola Question
Well, it's rather vague...one of those handful-of-this, handful-of-that propositions. And I make rather large batches. With those caveats:
12 cups uncooked rolled oats
1 cup large flakes coconut, unsweetened
1 cup raw almonds, chopped
1 cup raw walnuts, chopped
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 cups mixed dried fruit (I like a blend of dried cherries and raisins)
1 - 2 tbsp ground cinnamon
salt to taste
In a 350°F oven, toast the first four ingredients separately until each is golden and fragrant (I spread them on sheet pans and stir occasionally during toasting). The oats require toasting in 4 batches.
Put the butter and syrup in a small saucepan and heat over low heat until the butter is melted. Stir to combine.
In a VERY LARGE bowl, mix all ingredients until well blended.
Like most granola, this is fairly fatty, but I only eat 1/4 - 1/2 c. per day for breakfast.
