Homemade Granola Recipe

I’m embarrassed to say that I have never made homemade granola before today. For some reason I thought it was just too difficult. Boy was I wrong though, it’s too easy. You just take some rolled oats, and whatever seeds and nuts that sound good from the pantry. That’s it. It’s crazy easy, and will make a healthy snack you can store in airtight containers for several months. For my granola, I added my favorite healthy and nutritious seeds, sunflower and hemp. However, you could add pumpkin and flax if you prefer. Then I added my favorite nuts, pecans and almonds and some coconut. For the fruit, I added raisins, but you can add any type of dried fruit. Just be sure to add the fruit after the granola has cooked.
