Winter Granola
Author: 
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 8 cups
 
Here is the basic recipe, although honestly, you don’t really need one. The only caution I have is to not make your granola too sweet. Dress granola up or down, for winter or summer. And, it’s a perfect time to bring out some of those stashed blueberries you picked during the summer to throw into your morning breakfast bowl.
Ingredients
  • 6 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup steel-cut oats
  • 2 cups nuts and seeds of your choice
  • 2 cups dried fruit of your choice
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup Alaska honey
  • ¼ cup blueberry juice concentrate (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Grease 2 baking sheets.
  2. Combine all the ingredients together, mixing them well with your hands.
  3. Spread the granola onto the baking sheets. Bake for about 30 – 40 minutes, watching closely towards the end so the edges don’t burn. I like to turn the granola once or twice while baking.
  4. Remove from the oven and cool completely. Store the granola in glass jars or sealable plastic bags to stay fresh.
