Granola is so easily adapted to what is in your pantry that day, so you can spice things up a different way until you find your favorite combinations.
3 cups oats (I've used both Quaker and the quick oats from the #10 cans of food storage. I like the consistency the quick oats give it, but they're both good.)
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped nuts (chopped so they are undetectable to little people, in my case) (slivered almonds, pecans, & walnuts are excellent choices)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 to 1 cup dehydrated apple slices, crushed slightly
I also like to throw in 1 Tbsp of ground flax seeds
1/4 cup canola oil
3 Tbsp maple syrup
3 Tbsp honey
Pour over dry ingredients and mix well.
Heat oven to 250 and spread granola evenly onto a baking sheet. Cook for 1 hour 15 min, stirring half way through. It smells amazing. Enjoy!
