Lindsay's homemade granola.

This is my sister's granola recipe and I tried it out a couple days before we left for California, and then brought mason jars of it to thank friends for hosting us while we were there :) It was the perfect gift, and so yummy!

7 1/2 cups of old fashioned oats (do not get the instant one minute oats!)
1/2 cup of chopped pecans
1/2 cup of toasted almond slices
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
1/2 cup of ground flax seed
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of honey
1 teaspoon of vanilla

Thoroughly mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.

Add vanilla to the cup of honey and pour into dry mixture. mix until all granola is wet and clumps of granola have started forming.

Now for the baking process... use three baking sheets and divide the granola evenly among them (you do not need to grease the pans, but you could use parchment paper below). Bake all three sheets of granola at once at 300 degrees. Bake for 10 minute intervals, for 30 to 40 minutes. at each 10 minute interval, remove the granola pans and give the granola a good stir and rotation. The key to the success of your granola lies in the baking process... do it slow so that you don't burn it!

Once the granola has browned, you are done! Remove pans to cooling racks and let the granola sit and continue baking on the racks until it has reached room temperature.

You are done! Enjoy it on top of a yogurt with fruit or just with milk :)

I'll vouch for the awesomeness... especially since I'm lindsay's husband. I had it today with some vanilla yogurt. we've been subbing out the pecans for walnuts for the past couple weeks and threw in a 1/2 of shredded coconut this week. pretty darn tasty if you ask me.
