sweet and salty granola

i’m going to chicago this weekend! for the socialism 2012 conference which will be amazing! but i’m trying to do it cheap which means apples, carrots and hummus, peanut butter and jam, and granola. lots and lots of granola.

the inspiration for this recipe comes from alton brown’s recipe for granola. i think the most important thing i learned from the recipe is to bake it slow. i have had way too many batches ruined by hot ovens and unheard timers. this way takes longer but works better.

sweet and salty granola
3 cups whole oats
1 cup chopped almonds
1 cup coconut
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon table salt
1 teaspoon larger sea salt

mix ingredients together well and add

1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla

spread evenly on one large baking sheet or two regular baking sheets. bake for 1 hr 15 minutes checking every 15 minutes at 250 degrees.
