Homemade Granola Crunch

.

Ingredients (use vegan versions):


  • 6 cups rolled oats ( I use multi-grain)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 – 2 cups chopped nuts ( I like almonds & walnuts)
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/3 cup flax seeds ( whole or ground)
  • 1/4 cup vegan maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup turbinado vegan sugar
  • 3 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups water
  • 2 cups dried mixed fruit bits of your choice

Directions:


1. Mix all ingredients EXCEPT the fruit bits.


2. For granola without chunks, move to step 4.


3. For granola with chunks, Slowly stir in pot over low-
medium heat until ingredients become sticky and form clumps
(it will be somewhat hard to stir). If you need to add
more water, do so.


4. Dump mixture onto 2 large jelly-roll pans, spread
evenly.


5. Bake at 300 F for 1 – 1 1/2 hours (less time is needed
for the granola with no chunks), stirring every 15-20
minutes. Granola will be a golden brown when it is ready.


6. Cool granola by spreading it out on flattened paper
grocery bags.


7. Add dried fruit bits.


Store in an air tight container–it will last several
weeks, though ours is always eaten by then.


Serves: 6-10 cups


Preparation time: 2 hrs
