Thinking of "Starting our mornings of right" I just recently developed this granola recipe. All natural, I believe it gets your "WHOLE BODY" off to a GREAT start!! I bag up 3 oz. bags, travels great in purses & briefcases for that any time, on the go, healthy snack. I purchase most ingredients at bulk stores (Almish/Quaker)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees, I use a large turkey roaster for this recipe, you will need to have plenty of room to mix well.
  2. In a large GLASS mixing bowl pour in orange juice then the orange peel, stir & set aside.
  3. Put in the first 9 ingredients into the lg. roaster, I use my hands to mix, you want to separate all the fruit & rubbing with the flour keeps them from sticking back together, but more importantly it will allow the wet ingredients to fully coat all the fruit & nuts.
  4. Returning to the lg. glass bowl, add the remaining ingredients. Using a wire whisk beat until emulsified. They will start to take on a cloudy appearance. Pour over the dry ingredients in the roaster. using a large metal spoon stir together very well, I will usually spend at least 5 minutes or more on this, it does make a difference.
  5. Using glass (5-6 pcs)or metal baking pans with sides (4-5 pcs) pour mix into required pans to keep mix less than an inch in the height of the pans. Bake in center position for a hour, mixing bottom to top every 15 minute. Remove from oven & stir once more, leave in pans to cool. Do not over bake, it will continue to crisp as it cools.
  6. Will keep in air tight containers for 2 weeks or in freezer for 4 weeks.
