Homemade Granola

My brother wanted granola this week,  so I looked inside our shelves and put this medley together.  Why are toasted  oats way more delicious than cooked oats?

Here’s what we had in stock:
-Oats
-Raw Sunflower seeds
-Sesame seeds, untoasted
-Cashews, raw
-Maple syrup
-Molasses
-Unsweetened shredded coconut

Toss ingredients to taste; bake for 15-20 @ 350 degrees.

I really wanted to add some dried fruits, but he didn’t.

Instead we made cinnamon sugar almonds (almonds tossed in cinnamon, sugar and egg whites) and tossed it in after the granola had cooled down.

What a simple and delicious way to make homemade cereal. He was satisfied all week long! Cinnamon sugar can do that to a person.
