April 14: Granola

My niece, Kaytlin, came to spend the night with us and brought some yummy granola that she and her mother made. Here's the recipe for it.

1 1/4 c flour
3 1/4 c oats
1 c pecans
1 heaping c almonds, raw
1 1/3 c sweetened flaked coconut
1.4 c flax seed (optional)
1/8 c oil
1/2 c water
1 c brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp salt

Pre-heat oven to 300. In a large mixing bowl combine flour, oats, nuts, spice and flax seed. Set aside. In a medium sauce pan heat oil, water and sugar until boiling. Boil until sugar is dissolved. Take off heat then add vanilla. Pour sugar mixture over flour mixture and let it sit without stirring for 10 minutes. Then stir until combined. Spread evenly in cookie sheet. Bake 45 minutes stirring every 15 minutes. Let cool and add 1 cup craisins.
