Homemade Granola (with no refined sugars)
- 7 cups old fashioned oats

- 1 1/2 cups of slivered almonds (optional: food processor them for less crunch)

- 1/2 cup shelled sunflower seeds (optional: food processor them for less crunch)

- 1 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

1 cup raisins or other dry fruit

- 3 Tablespoons of cinnamon

- 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg

- 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

- 3 tablespoons pure vanilla (check the ingredients, most vanilla has corn syrup added…)

- 1 1/2 cups of no sugar added applesauce

- 1/4 cup honey
Set your oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix together all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix together the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and blend. You wont the granola just barely moist. Add a bit of applesauce if it seems too dry (blend really well, get the wet ingredients mixed in well). Place the granola in a 1/2 inch thick layer on 2 cookie pans (make sure the pans have sides, so the granola doesn’t slide off). Bake the granola in the oven for 40 – 50 minutes. Mixing up the granola blend every ten minutes. This will help the granola to cook evenly, and hopefully not burn. The outer pieces of granola will probably cook faster. This recipe made enough to fill two 24 ounce jars and one 12 ounce jar.
