Monday Menus: Granola

Here’s a recipe for granola that I’ve made for years. It’s very adaptable. If you like raisins, or other dried fruits, you can add up to a cup. You could also substitute other nuts, or add 1/2 c toasted wheat germ, or  1/2 c sunflower seeds, or some flax seeds or chia seeds.

1 c shredded coconut

8 c rolled oats

2 c coarsely chopped almonds

2 Tbsp sesame seeds

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 c honey

2 sticks butter (1 c), melted

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spread coconut on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until toasted, 5-10 min. Cool.

2. Decrease oven temperature to 300 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment or a silpat. Set aside. Toss together oats, almonds, sesame seeds, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

3. In a small bowl, stir together honey and butter. Pour over oat mixture. Stir well. Spread onto baking sheets. Bake until golden, about 30 minutes. Cool, then break up granola. Sprinkle with coconut.
