A recipe and a giveaway

Every once in a while I like to make granola to throw in with my yogurt.  This is a really easy recipe and another way for me to use that lovely golden honey my girls produced this past summer season.

If you are so inclined, here is the recipe:
{I use organic but the choice is yours}

4 cups large flake oats
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup wheat bran
1/2 cup flax meal
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 Tablespoon cinnamon

Mix together in a large bowl. 

Warm and mix well together:
1/4 cup safflower oil
1/2 cup honey

dried cranberries or raisins

Pour oil/honey mix over the dry mix.  Toss until well coated.  Lay out on a parchment covered baking sheet.   If you use the average size baking sheet prepare two and bake at the same time or one larger industrial size bake pan.  
Bake at 350 F for 5 minute intervals stirring and then returning to the oven for another 5 minutes 3 times for a total of 15 minutes or until golden brown (or browned to you're liking).  I like mine slightly darker and crunchier so I bake for the whole 15 minutes.
Toss in dried cranberries or raisins - stir.  Let cool.

And the giveaway . . .

I have one ticket for the Thunder Bay & District Master Gardeners

This ticket is for 1/2 day either from 10-12 or 1-3 and does not include lunch.
If you're interested, just leave a comment below and I will randomly select the winner.  

For more information on the seminar see my earlier post or you can also take a stroll over to the February issue of The Walleye ~ Thunder Bay's arts & culture magazine, page 41.
