Granola

A family favorite!

7 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 1/4 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup chopped nuts of your choice
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup honey or other natural sweetener
1/2 cup olive or coconut oil
1 cup dried fruit: raisins, dates, prunes, apples, or pineapple

Mix oats, coconut, nuts, sunflower and sesame seeds in a large roasting pan. Measure honey and oil into a nonmetal 2-cup measuring cup. Heat in microwave for 30-45 seconds, or until warm. Pour honey mixture over cereal and mix and stir well. Bake at 325 degrees for 15-20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.

After the cereal mixture has cooled, stir in dried fruit and stor in an airtight container.
