When you make your own granola, not only do you save money and know exactly how fresh it is, but, best of all, you also custom blend it. If any of the following ingredients aren’t personal favorites or if you have a hard time locating them, then don’t bother. It won’t matter a bit. Make sure to store the granola in the refrigerator where it will keep for several months.
Preheat the oven to 325°F. with the rack in the center position. Place all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and with your hands or 2 large spoons mix them well. Spread the granola in a large, shallow baking pan; the layer should not be deeper than 1 inch. You may have to bake the granola in several batches. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let the granola cool completely before storing it in a closed container.
Many of the ingredients can be found in a health food store.
