No frills here! I make this granola about once a month, and the whole family loves it. Family members can then add dried or fresh fruit, or miscellaneous seeds to their own bowl, but it starts out plain for those who like it that way.
(makes approximately 14 cups of granola)
In a large pan (I use a turkey roasting pan -- the high sides prevent spills) combine:
¾ c grapeseed or coconut oil (my kids prefer grapeseed)
½ c honey
¼ c molasses
1 t cinnamon
1 t salt
¼ c water
Preheat oven to 300 and melt ingredients together until bubbly, stirring after 5 minutes, and then allowing mixture to bubble and boil again.
Add to the bubbly mixture:
1 tub whole oats (2 lb. 10 oz.)
1 c chopped walnuts
1 c pecans
½ c ground flax seed
¼ c sesame seeds
Stir dry ingredients into wet mixture (in pan) until fully combined. Return pan to oven and bake for 40 minutes, stirring thoroughly every 10 minutes. Cool and store in a tightly sealed container.
