Granola reminds me of people. It takes a whole lot of different and crazy things to make something so yummy and versatile. Just like people, it takes a whole lot of us with our different ways to make fun and interesting. My sister-in-law gave me a recipe which had a dozen ingredients and it was really good. But in my simple ways I kept only the essential ones that I usually have in my cupboards to make this recipe.
5 cups oats (you can use quick oats but don't regular ones are so much better for you.)
3/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup whole pecans
Place in a large bowl.
1 cup honey (make sure it is very warm for easier mixing and stirring)
1/2 cup oil
1/2 t salt
1-2 Tablespoons vanilla
Whisk all together. Quickly pour over oat/nut mixture and stir until all ingredients are thoroughly coated.
