It seems that no matter how fabulous a recipe may be, I can't leave well enough alone and tweaked the recipe, so here is my version:
Homemade Granola [Clean Eating]
Makes about 9 cups.
6 cups oats [or mixed grains...our krogers didn't have them]
1 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/4 cup flax seed meal
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
2/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Preheat oven to 325F.
Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Whisk wet ingredients in a small, separate bowl.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients
& mix with a spatula until everything is well coated.
Spread on two lined [foil or parchment paper] cookie sheets
and bake for 45-60 minutes stirring every 10-15 minutes.
Mine took right about an hour checking it every 15 minutes.
You want it to be dry and slightly golden.
Let it cool and store in an airtight container.
In the original recipe pecans, flax seed, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg were not called for...but like I said i like to change recipes. I would consider this to be a basic recipe, with lots of room to change it to your preference. I want to try adding raisins, cranberries, dried apples, maybe even using molasses to creating a gingerbread version...or pure maple syrup or agave nectar instead of honey. So many varieties to try!
