Snack Attack

I don't about you, but there are times that I am completely and totally attacked with the urge to snack. So, I figured I would try to fight my snacking battle with something healthy, or at least something that contains healthy components. In doing so, I can use up some of my food storage supply so that I can keep it rotated and fresh. There is a great recipe for granola, my snack of choice, on which I am posting to share with all of you. It is super easy, so enjoy!


Makes about 2 quarts

6 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup raisins or other dried fruit
1 cup coconut
1 cup nuts, chopped
1/3 cup sesame seeds
Mix all ingredients except raisins. Stir in and coat thoroughly with: 1/2 cup oil 1/3 cup honey 2 tsp. vanilla
Spread on cookie sheet and bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Add raisins or other dried fruit and bake 5 more minutes
