Yup you read the title correctly, this recipe is for NO FUSS granola... I have always wanted to make granola but have been dissuaded by the 'weird' ingredients. My friend gave me this oldy yet goodie granola recipe, and I LOVE it! There was only one ingredient (sunflower seeds) that I don't usually keep on hand, and it was super easy! This is a very flexible recipe, you can add and omit as desired!
6 cups rolled oats (I used old fashioned)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup coconut
1/3 cup sesame seeds (I omitted this)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
I cup chopped nuts
Dried fruit (optional)
Mix all ingredients except dry fruit. Stir in and coat thoroughly with"
1/2 cup oil
1/3 cup honey
2 tsp vanilla
Spread on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degree for 25-30 minutes. Last five minutes add 1 cup raisins or other dried fruit. I baked mine for 15 minutes, then stirred the granola. I stirred again at 20 minutes, and 25. You have to watch it close or it will burn. Take the granola out once it looks golden brown, it will still be a little sticky.
Well I made it last week... and it is all gone. We ate with yogurt, as cereal, as a snack, gave some to friends! So yummy! FREEZER TIP: I did not freeze this (we ate it all) but I learned from two different sources you can freeze granola in a zip top bag, just try to remove all of the air.
I like to link at these fabulous parties!
