We love the "clumping factor" of this granola. It's a healthy alternative to the cold cereal my dad and brother love to eat.
2/3 cup of honey
1/2 cup of coconut oil
3 cups of old-fashioned oats
1 cup of almonds, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup of sesame seeds
1 cup of sunflower seeds
1 cup of unsweetened coconut
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of fresh ground nutmeg
Dried fruit, raisins, dates, craisins, if desired
1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Melt the honey and oil together in a small bowl. Set it aside.
2. Mix together all of the dry ingredients. Pour in the honey mixture. Stir until all the ingredients are combined.
3. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Pour the granola onto the cookie sheet. It will be thick.
4. Place it in the oven. Bake it for 30 minutes. Stir the granola a couple of times during cooking.
5. Let it cool on the counter and store in an air-tight container.
