Become a Granola Making Liberal

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

Picture of 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. )

From one SF native to another, I just have to say... great title. Recipe looks promising, too. Thanks for making it vegan.

Honey cooked = honey wasted. Flavor, aroma and most of the the beneficial components of honey are easily cooked off. Therefore temperature of honey should never get above 40 °C . For sweetening your cooking you can effectively use glucose syrup.
 It seems the honey here is acting more of a binder instead of purely aromatic/flavor...

Similarly, I like jam - but understand that a bit of heat  is necessary to activate the naturally occurring pectin :p
or you could use agave nectar

I'm making granola now, but I'm not a liberal.

I object on the grounds that this instructable doesn't tell me how to be a liberal ;) I do need to try to make granola sometime, though.
