On busy summer mornings, this tends to be my go-to breakfast. It’s gluten free and all you have to do is add milk or yogurt and fruit! Delicious! My go-to egg/sausage dish is here.
7 cups oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 cup coconut
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup honey
2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350*
Heat only the oats for 10 min. (use any size pan or bowl that works with some extra room for stirring)
Mix dry ingredients together in one bowl and wet ingredients in another.
Stir dry ingredients into the oats thoroughly. Then mix in the wet ingredients.
Bake for 20 min more stirring every 5 min.
Let the granola cool in the pan, stirring every so often while it cools to keep it from sticking.
Feel free to add or subtract ingredients based on your tastes. Sometime I’ll add raisins after it cools and during some seasons, pecans or walnuts. Your imagination is the limit.
Heat only oats first
Then add the dry ingredients
Then add the wet ingredients
Stir occasionally while the granola is cooling.
