When I have the time and the ingredients on hand I like to make some tasty granola for the bf. It is super easy and delicious and you can easily switch out or add to it to adjust it to your tastes or dietary needs. Selma Cafe, and my take on the article is that this granola is served up quite often. original recipe to suit our tastes. Dry ingredients 5 cups old fashioned rolled oats, 1 cup slivered almonds, 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds. Toss all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl mix together the wet ingredients 1/2 cup pure maple syrup, 6 tablespoons melted coconut oil, 1/4 cup honey, 1 tsp vanilla or maple extract and 1/2 tsp salt. Mix the wet ingredients together until well blended then pour over dry and toss and fold until the nuts and oats are well coated. Place all on a large cookie sheet and bake in a oven that has been preheated to 300 degrees check on granola about every 7 to 10 min. turn and rotate the nuts and oats often to your desired toastiness (should be a word). Remove from oven and let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
