Making granola is just as easy as making cookies, maybe even easier as you can wing the recipe with pretty good success.
My granola was loosely based on a recipe from Sunset Magazine, but I changed the ingredients and didn't measure anything. Even so it came out delicious.
When done, optionally donate your granola to the homeless to achieve the "liberal" part of the Instructable.
Step 1: Mix dry ingredients together
I used something like:
3 c Oats, quick or old fashioned
1 T White sesame seeds
1/2 c Sunflower seeds
1/2 c Pecan pieces
1 c Slivered almonds
(The original ecipe had called for nonfat dried milk. By leaving this out you have a vegan delight.
It also suggested wheat germ and unsweetened coconut. )
