Servings 2 quarts

Ingredients

  • 4 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup raw almonds roughly chopped
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil or sunflower oil
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Begin by preheating your oven to 275 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, toss together the oats, almonds, flaked coconut, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds. Set aside.
  • In a saucepan, combine the oil, honey, brown sugar, water, cinnamon, and salt. Heat on medium-high, just until the mixture is about to boil. Remove from heat, add the vanilla extract, and stir to combine.
  • Pour the liquid mixture over the oat mixture. Toss to evenly coat the dry ingredients.
  • Divide the granola in half and spread it in an even layer on two large baking sheets.
  • Bake for 1 hour at 275 degrees F. Stir the granola once while baking. Remove from the oven; then stir the granola and place it back in the oven for an additional 1 hour, lowering the temperature to 250 degrees F. Stir again halfway through baking.
  • Remove from the oven and allow the granola to cool completely. Break up any large chunks. Store the granola in airtight container(s) for up to one month.
