Author Notes: Store bought granola usually contains extra unnecessary sugars, salt, and other additives that our bodies do not need. Homemade granola has a simple formula that makes it so easy to make in a jiffy. The concept of a "Compost Granola" is that you can follow the basic formula but add whatever you have at home and infuse it with your own favourite flavours.Dee

Serves: many delicious breakfasts and snacks

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 275 F
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients together until well mixed.
  3. In a smaller mixing bowl, mix wet ingredients together. (Prior to mixing, make sure honey and oil are in liquid form- if they aren't heat them until liquidized).
  4. Combine both mixtures and pour a thin layer onto 2 well lined sheet pans. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to achieve an even color.
  5. Remove from oven and transfer into a large bowl. When cooled, store in an airtight container.
