- cup ½ unsalted butter 125g
- cup ¼ honey 60ml
- 1/4 cup dark brown sugar -- optional 55g
- teaspoon ¼fine sea salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 cups rolled oats or flakes made from other grains
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut 90g
- cup ¼ sunflower seeds 40g
- 1/3 cup sesame seeds 35g
- 1/3 cup raw almonds 30g
Preheat the oven to 350F (180C).
Place the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. When it has melted enough to cover the bottom of the pan, add the honey and brown sugar and whisk occasionally as the butter melts. When it is fully melted, gently whisk in the salt and vanilla. Remove from the heat.
Place the grains, coconut, seeds and almonds in a large bowl. Pour the sauce- it may still be very hot, which is fine – over the mixture. Toss until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined, then turn out the granola onto two baking sheets. Spread it out into an even layer and bake in the center of the oven, stirring occasionally, until the granola is golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
Remove from the heat and let cool, then break up the clumps and transfer to airtight containers and store in a cool spot. The granola will keep well for about 1 month.
