4c. old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 c. sunflower seeds (raw is best)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 c. honey (spray measuring cup w/ Pam first)
8 Tbs. melted butter
pinch of salt
1/2 c. raisins (optional)
1/2 c. dried apples, chopped (optional)
1/2 c. toasted coconut (optional)
Heat oven to 300 degrees. Line baking sheet w/ waxed paper or parchment paper.
In large bowl, combine oats, sunflower seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt: set aside.
In a small bowl, combing honey and melted butter, pour over the mixture. Stir well; spread on baking sheet and bake for 45-50 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. As it cools it will get crispy and stick together. When cool, break up the granola and add raisins (and whatever other dried fruit you would like). Store in an airtight container. Makes about 6 1/2 cups.
