3 1/2 cups oats, rolled, (if you want bars use steel cut oats so it will stick together better)
1 cup almonds, raw, sliced
1 cup cashews, or walnuts or pecans
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, raw
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, raw
2 teaspoons cinnamon, ground
1 1/2 teaspoons ginger, ground
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, ground
6 tablespoons butter, unsalted
1/2 cup honey
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
Cover a rectangular baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix the dry oats, almonds, cashews, coconut, seeds and spices together in a large mixing bowl.
Heat the butter and honey together in a small saucepan over low heat. Once the butter melts stir in the vanilla and salt.
Pour the hot liquids over the dry ingredients and stir together with a rubber spatula until evenly coated.
Spread mixture onto prepared pan in one even layer. Bake for 75 minutes.
The granola will become crisp as it cools at which point you can break into pieces (if making bars) or break it up into small chunks by pounding it in a zip lock bag (if making cereal). Store in air tight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
