My (soon to be famous) Granola

I realize this blog is all over the place.  Maybe someday I'll figure out what I want to be when I grow up.  

One of my hobbies is cooking.  Here is my granola recipe.  Eat a cup of this in the morning with some almond milk and you'll feed healthier all day long.  

Layne’s (soon to be) Famous Granola

10 cups rolled oats
2 cups of 7 grain cereal
1 cup sunflower seeds
2 cups sliced almonds
1/2 cup flax seed
3 cups flaked coconut
2 cups dried cranberries

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup real maple syrup
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup molasses
1 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt (may be omitted if the sunflower seeds are salted) 

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Spray 2 large baking sheets with non-stick spray.
  2. Combine the oats, 7 grain, sunflower seeds, almonds, coconut, and flax seed in a large bowl.  Stir together
  3. In a sauce pan, combine the sugar, syrup, honey, molasses, oil, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon.  Bring to boil over medium heat.  
  4. Pour the mixture over the dry ingredients and stir to coat evenly. Divide the mixture and spread it evenly on the two baking sheets.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and stir the granola.  Return it to the oven and bake it for another 20 minutes.  
  6. Allow the granola to cool then stir in the cranberries.  Store in an airtight container.
