Mom's Best Granola
December 15, 2008

great recipe with a few 'tweaks' to suit your tastes: like the other reviewers, I cut down the cooking time/temperature significantly (I cook it at 300 degrees for about 30-40 minutes, checking and stirring at 15-20 minute intervals, then I turn the oven off and let it sit in the oven as the oven cools off), skipped the sesame seeds and upped the sunflower seeds to 1/2 cup, sprinkled a little cinnamon and nutmeg, added some minced orange zest, and some dried cranberries. I found it's best to add the dried fruit AFTER I turn the oven off, because if it's in there from the beginning it gets a burnt smell/taste. I've been making batches of this about once a month for the past year!
