Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 325 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil and honey; set aside. Toss the oats, coconut, pecans, and sunflower seeds together in a large bowl. Add the oil mixture, and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined. Pour mixture onto two 13-by-8-inch baking sheets, and bake, stirring frequently, until the mixture is an even golden brown, 20 to 40 minutes, checking every 5 minutes.

This recipe, as I began to prepare it, is a no-go for my family. For example, it's equal parts of nuts and oats. That is not granola, that is a really fatty breakfast. Then it has super high sugar with such a large quantity of dried fruit. I'm sorry Martha, but that's not practical or appropriate for breakfast. Then of course you ADD oil and sugar to this already monstrous amt. of fat and sugar. No thank you. I'll look further.

it would be a healthier recipe if you used canola or sunflower oil instead of vegetable.
