Oishii: Granola

I am a big fan of making my own granola. It is such a forgiving recipe with almost endless variations, but it's taken a few tries to come up with one that works for me and my family.  The one below is the one we love the most and I thought it might make a nice gift this Christmas.  A few glass jars from IKEA with some ribbon make it look nice 'n pretty.

Crunchy Granola
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup sesame seed
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)

Combine oats, nuts, coconut and seeds in one bowl.  In a separate container, mix honey and coconut oil, then pour over oat mixture and stir to combine.  Spread evenly onto a cookie sheet and bake in 300 degree oven until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.  Remove from oven and spread onto waxed paper to cool.  Store in airtight containers for up to 2 weeks.
