This is my usual granola recipe. It’s supposed to cook in 15 min. but it always takes me a lot longer–30-45 min., maybe more. I like it really toasted.

granola with yogurt

Mix in a large bowl:

3 cups rolled oats (old fashioned or quick cooking)

1 cup chopped walnuts and/or pecans

1/2 cup chopped almonds

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

1/4 cup sesame seeds

In a small saucepan, combine and heat until warm:

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup honey

Pour over the oat and nut mixture and spread on a large baking sheet. Bake at 325 degrees, stirring every 5-15 minutes until it is toasted as much as you want (15-45+ min.).  Stir in 1 cup raisins and/or dried cranberries or cherries.
