My traditional oven was occupied by bread and I really wanted to make some granola today. So, I decided to make it in the roasting oven! It came out wonderfully
10 cups of oats (I don't use quick oats for this)
1 cup of coconut oil
1 cup of raw honey
1T of cinnamon
1T of vanilla (I used some Mexican vanilla that a neighbor brought back for me...yum!)
1 cup of whole wheat pastry flour
And that's it for our granola. You can add coconut, raisins, flax seed, nuts etc. but my family likes it a bit more basic.
Measure out the coconut oil and honey into a sauce pan and put it on the stovetop on low to melt a bit. Next, measure the oats, cinnamon and flour into the roasting oven and blended them well. Back to the stovetop...stir the coconut oil and honey mixture until smooth, remove from heat and add the vanilla to it . Pour it over the oats and mix until everything is well blended. Turn on roasting oven to approx. 300 degrees. Cook for about 1 hour, mixing every 10-15 minutes.
Here's what it looks like while it was cooking....
