Homemade Organic Granola VIDEO Granola is a favorite breakfast food and snack food in my house. Mine consist of rolled oats, nuts, seeds and honey. It is baked until crispy. I like adding dried fruit to mine to give it that salty, sweet taste . Go ahead and combine it with yogurt, strawberries, bananas.
Ingredients
  Rolled oats 5 Cup (80 tbs)
  Chopped almonds 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Chopped walnuts 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Chopped pecans 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sesame seeds 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Wheat germ 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Shredded coconut 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Unsalted sunflower seeds 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Coconut oil 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Honey 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Raisins 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Dried cranberries 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
2. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, almonds, walnuts, pecans, sesame seeds, wheat germ, coconut and sunflower seeds.
3. In a small pan over medium heat, stir together the coconut oil and honey. Cook and stir until blended, heating it for about 2 to 3 minutes. Pour over the oat mixture, and stir to coat evenly.
4. Spread out the mixture in an even layer on two cookie sheets.
5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the oats and nuts are toasted. Immediately after it comes out of the oven, stir in the raisins and dried cranberries. Let stand until cooled, and stir again to break up any large clusters.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks, but I guarantee it won’t be around that long!

Can you please tell me about the mill you used here. Is it for grain or a coffee grinder?
