Maple Granolies with Lots of Goodies August 22, 2011

Filed under: Breakfast,Desserts,Uncategorized — Meg @ 9:59 am

4 cups oats (not instant!)
1 cup oat bran flakes
1 cup coconut (shredded is nice)
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1/3 cup walnut pieces
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup maple syrup (the real stuff!)
1/2 Tbsp milk
little pinch o’salt
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large (LARGE!!!) bowl, or a roasting pan works well, mix ingredients from oats down to nutmeg. Place butter, maple syrup, milk and salt in a small saucepan, and stir to combine over low heat, until homogeneous. Pour evenly over oat mixture, stir very well, but don’t break it up too much (clusterfuck granolie is what you want). If you’re using a roasting pan, just keep it in there. Otherwise, place on a large baking sheet with edges. Place in oven, for 20-30 minutes, stirring about every 10. Be careful for scorching, this recipe is fast and wonderful, you just have to pay attention!

Fall in love with a bearded man, start wearing sandals all year round, and enjoy a bowl with some yogourt and Jerry Garcia.
