Homemade Granola recipe

Homemade Granola
(adapted from dairyfreecooking.com)

8 cups rolled oats
2 cups millet
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 cups sliced almonds
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 TBSP cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup honey
¼ cup molasses
1 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 cups dried cranberries
1 cup candied ginger (optional)

Preheat the oven to 325 F. Set aside two large ungreased baking sheets. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, millet, wheat germ, sliced almonds, chopped pecans, sunflower seeds, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, and salt.

In another small mixing bowl, mix together honey, molasses, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla until well combined. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing well to evenly distribute. Spread the granola evenly on the baking sheets and bake until golden, about 20-25 minutes, rotating the pans half-way through and running a metal spatula beneath the granola to evenly brown. Allow the granola to cool completely on the pans, then toss with the dried cranberries and candied ginger (if using) and store in an airtight container.

Enjoy granola with yogurt or kefir or eat is as a little snack!
