Cinnamon Crunch Granola
- 4 cups instant oats
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 cup coconut
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds (not roasted or salted)
- 1/8 cup cornmeal
- 1/2 cup assorted nuts (I used pecans and almonds)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Cook together brown sugar and water over low heat until the sugar is dissolved.
Increase heat until the mixture boils. Reduce heat again. Cook and stir one minute.
Remove from heat and add oil and vanilla. Pour over oat mixture and stir to coat.
Pour into pan (the original recipe says to use jelly roll pan . . . I don't have one) and cook @ 275 for 60-70 min.
Cool on a cooling rack (in the pan). After 10 min break-up granola into desired texture.
Verdict: It was REALLY good. We ate it plain, but really liked it with fresh fruit, and as a topping for yogurt.
