Granola
Enjoy this healthy, crunchy granola for breakfast or snack time. Once you try this recipe, you'll never go to store bought again.
Ingredients
3 -4 cups rolled oat flakes
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup flax seeds
1/2 cup oil
1 Tbsp carob powder or cocoa (optional)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 - 1/2 cup dry sweetener (you decide how sweet)
1/2 tsp salt

*Set aside
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped dates
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Directions
Preheat oven to 350 deg. In a large bowl, mix together the oat flakes, sunflower seeds, almonds, sesame seeds and flax seeds. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the oil, carob powder, cinnamon, sweetener, and salt. Add this mixture to the large bowl and combine well. In a lasagna pan or on 2 flat cookie sheets, spread mixture evenly and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the top layer is browned (if you use cookie sheets, bake for 12-15 minutes). Flip over with spatula and bake for another 8-10 minutes, then remove from oven. The mixture will be moist, but will dry and harden as it cools. Mix in dried fruit ingredientsand let cool, stirring every 10 minutes to prevent clumping. Store in air-tight containers. Serve with fresh fruit and soy milk.
