Soft Crunch Granola
by the seat of my pants
325 degree oven
2 c regular oats
2 c regular oats - pulsed in the food processor
1/2 c regular oats - ground into oat flour
1/4 c flax seeds - ground
1/2 c pumpkin seeds
1/2 c walnut pieces
1/2 c sliced almonds
1 c coconut
Place the oats into a large bowl, add the seeds and nuts mixing well.
3 T oil
1/3 c sugar
1 t vanilla
dash of salt
Add the oil to a measuring cup, add water to make 1/2 of fluid. Combine the water mixture and the sugar, heat to boiling (I used a microwave), stir to dissolve sugar. Add vanilla and salt. Stir again. Evenly pour over oats and stir to combine.
Evenly spread on a jelly roll pan. Bake 20 minutes, stir corners into center and bottom to top. Bake 10 minutes more, again stir as directed. Turn oven off, let sit in oven 20 minutes to finish cooking and dry.
Sprinkle over the top of the finished granola, 1 c dried fruit. I used cranberries and raisins. Stir to combine, and let mixture come to room temperature before packaging up.
Makes about 10 cup.
