Nuts and Seeds Granola

If, like me, you love to have a something set aside to grab for a quick and easy breakfast then it is well worth making up a batch of your own granola at the weekend to see you through the week.

Once you have made and enjoyed your own granola you'll never be happy with anything store brought again!

Nuts and Seeds Granola

Makes approximately 14 1/2 Cup servings

3 Cups rolled oats
1/4 Cup chia seeds
2/3 Cup desiccated coconut
3/4 Cup pumpkin seeds
3/4 Cup sunflower seeds
3/4 Cup pecans, chopped
1 Cup slivered almonds
3 Tbsp Sunflower or canola oil
2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 Cup honey

1. Preheat oven to 200C (400F) Combine the oats, seeds, and nuts together in a large bowl. Combine the oil, vanilla, and honey together in a small bowl.

2. Pour the honey mixture over the oat mixture and coat the oat mixture very well in the liquid mixture.

3. Pour into a large roasting dish and bake for about 20 minutes, until the granola is golden, stir the mixture every 5 minutes.

4. Allow to cool completely before storing in a airtight container. The granola will keep for a few weeks.
