    Make your own granola

    Easy to do recipe---tried it and it came out great. It takes about an hour for baking to be done though...not 20-30 mins, and use 1/2 teaspoon of the spices and not a pinch.


    4 cups whole oats (use old fashioned, not instant)
    2 cups puffed or cluster-type cereal
    cup flax seeds
    cup toasted almond slivers
    Handful of sweetened coconut flakes (add cup brown sugar if using unsweetened)
    cup organic pineapple juice
    cup organic apple juice
    cup organic prune juice
    Juice from orange
    1 T ground cinnamon
    Pinch of nutmeg, ginger, cloves, allspice and cardamom
    Zest from one lemon or orange
    2 teaspoons coconut oil
    cup honey
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Mister w/ olive oil
    Handful each; dried blueberries, cranberries, currants, green raisins
    OPTIONAL: add salted peanuts for a salty mix

    Preheat oven to 325.
    Combine the juices, spices and coconut oil in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer until reduced by half. This should take about 20 minutes.
    While this simmers, combine the first 5 ingredients in a large bowl.
    Remove juice mixture from heat and allow to cook for 3-5 minutes.
    Add honey and vanilla. Toss sweetened warm juice mixture with the oats mixture.
    Mist 2 cookie sheets with olive oil. Spread mixture onto cookie sheets in a thin, even layer.
    For variety, try adding salted peanuts to one pan.
    Bake at 325 for 20-30 minutes, stirring once or twice, until golden and crunchy.
    Cool slightly, then stir in dried fruit. Store granola in an airtight container like a zip lock bag or large ball jar.
