Christmas Granola

Muesli800
Our Holiday always starts with Granola, homemade of course! We mix a little bit of everything into it. We tried it the first time last christmas, it was the perfect christmas gift to everyone in our family. Now they ask us for more Granola every time we see them.
Well family, here is the recipe so now you can do it yourself …

Christmas Granola

Dry ingredients:

2 cups rolled oats
2 cups rolled rye or buckwheat
1/2 cup almonds, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup hazelnu
ts, coarsely  chopped
1/2 cup flaked coconut, unsweetened
1/4 cup raw unshelled sunflower seeds
1/4 cup flaxseeds


4 tbsp liquid honey, agave, maple or apple syrup
4 tbsp water (or coconut oil, but make sure to melt it first)
1 tsp grounded cinnamon
1 tsp grounded vanilla

Soft ingredients, add after baking:
1 or 2 cups of dried fruit, coarsely chopped (apricots, cranberries, green & yellow raisins, apples, goji, mulberries, figs)

Preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients and place on the baking sheet. Drizzle with honey, water and spices and place in the oven for 15-25 minutes, stir around a couple of times to keep it from getting burnt.
Let the dry ingredients cool of before adding the dried fruit. Add some extra cinnamon if needed. Store the muesli in a large glass jar.

    (Comment part 2) This was delicious but I forgot to mention that I added salt - about 3/4 tsp. I believe this should have salt to even out the sweetness and give it that extra dimension.
