Mmm... Granola

Today I made a batch of granola. Though it is slightly different each time depending on what I have on hand, this is the basic recipe.

Almond Granola

3 c. Rolled Oats
1 c. Slivered Almonds
1/4 c. Sunflower Seeds (shelled)
2 T. Flaxseed Meal
2 T. Wheat Bran
1 T. Cinnamon
1 stick Butter
6 T. Honey
1 c. dried fruit (I used mixed berries this time)

Mix dry ingredience together.

Melt butter and honey in a pot over medium high heat.

Add to dry mix and stir until distributed
Bake @ 325 for 30 minutes stirring half way through

Yes, I have an avacado green stove. It's one of the last of it's kind.
Darn thing won't die!
Cool completely and mix in fruit
