Homemade Granola

Granola is something that is super easy to make!  It is quite expensive when you purchase it premade at the grocery store.  If you are able to pick up the ingredients in bulk and make it yourself you will be very pleased with the results.  You can use just about any nut, grain or dried fruit you would like.  You can really get creative with unique ingredients or just use what you have on hand.  


1 cup rolled oats
1 cup rolled rye flakes
1 cup rolled kamut flakes
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup cashews pieces (or roughly chopped whole)
1/2 cup almond pieces (or roughly chopped whole)
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds 
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons flax seeds
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon coarse salt
dash of freshly grated nutmeg


Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a frying pan over medium high heat toast cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. Once lightly toasted place into a large bowl.

Add oats, rye, kamut, raisins, flax seeds, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg.  Set aside.

In a small sauce pan heat honey and maple syrup over medium heat.  Once liquid becomes runny add to the bowl and toss with all ingredients.  

Place granola on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake granola in preheated oven for about 15 minutes.

Allow to cool before serving.
