Granola Recipe

I went to the health food store today. I always get a little nervous when I go there. Like they can tell I'm not legit, lol. The girls who work there are so wholesome and fresh and natural looking, and in I trudge with my shiny black purse and a little too much eye makeup. But anyway. I went. It's much less convenient that the normal grocery store. I didn't full on grocery shop. I just wanted to get a few things. I got all organic bulk supplies to make homemade granola cereal, organic milk, organic yogurt, some Annie's crackers for the kids to snack on, some natural, organic yogurt covered raisins, and a thing of natural, organic ranch dressing. I froze the yogurt in cubes to make smoothies out of. I made the cereal. Here is my homemade, organic, all natural, sugar free cereal. It actually tastes pretty good, here's the recipe.

Granola Recipe:
3 cups (300 grams) old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
3/4 cup (75 grams) sliced or slivered almonds
1/2 cup (45 grams) raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup (45 grams) raw pumpkin seeds
½ cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup wheat bran
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup honey
1 cup dried fruits (cranberries, cherries, apricots, dates, figs, and/or raisins) (optional)

Melt butter in small saucepan. Add honey, cinnamon and salt. Heat on low and mix until combined. Combine remaining dry ingredients. Pour honey mixture over and mix well. Spread on 2 cookie sheets and bake for 20-25 minutes at 325, or until lightly browned. Break apart as soon as you remove from oven. It will be a little soft as soon as you take it out of the oven, but it crisps up as it cools. Once cool, add dried fruit of your choosing (I used chopped dried apples) and store in airtight container.
