Granola

Posted by trktos on 6-November-2010

Lately, I’ve been making granola on the weekends, for breakfast during the week. A double batch of this recipe fits perfectly in two 10*15 sheet pans.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups – 300 grams – rolled oats (don’t use instant)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds (I use roasted, unsalted)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds (I use raw – they’ll toast)
  • 3/4 cup nuts (I use, in a double batch, half pecans and half walnuts)
  • 1 tbsp wheat germ
  • 1 cup dried fruit
  • 2 tbsp margarine
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • about 1 1/2 tbsp orange juice concentrate
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

Instructions:

  1. Mix oats, seeds, nuts and wheat germ.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix syrup, orange juice, margarine. Heat in microwave until margarine melts. Stir in cinnamon and salt.
  3. Coat oat/seed mix with syrup mix. Spread onto sheet pan.
  4. Bake in preheated 325 degree oven, 30 – 40 minutes. Stir every 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven. Add fruit when cooled.
