Homemade Granola round TWO

Since we are trapped in the house for at least the next like 18 hours because of snow, I thought I’d do some baking!  Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get out to the grocery store before the snow hit, so some of the things I wanted to make will have to wait until I can get the ingredients.  I did finally make up a second batch of homemade granola- complete with photos and a few variations!

Uncle Steve’s Granola

4 cups old fashioned or quick oats

1 cup chopped walnuts

¼ cup vanilla hemp protein

¼ cup chopped pecans

¼ cup ground flax seed

Several shakes of pumpkin pie spice

Mix well and then add:

1/3 cup canola oil

½ cup honey/agave nectar

Mix well and then spread onto two cookie sheets. Bake at 300 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from oven and stir in about 1 cup of dried fruit (I did a mix of chopped banana chips, dates, and golden raisins and about ¼ cup of coconut flakes).  Remove promptly onto a separate cookie sheet to cool, then store in bags or sealed jar.
