Gimme More Granola


Gimme More Granola

1/4 cup chopped dried plums or Medjool dates
1/4 cup water
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
2 TB unsweetened apple juice
1 TB extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup raisins
2 TB chopped almonds
2 TB chopped walnuts
2 TB sunflower seeds
2 TB unsweetened shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 350º F. In a small saucepan, add plums and water. Cook over medium heat 5 minutes, or until plums are softened. Transfer to a food processor or blender, and process until mixture is a thick paste.

In a large bowl, combine plum mixture, apple juice, olive oil, oats, raisins, almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and coconut. Stir well, making sure everything is well coated. Spread out on a baking sheet, and bake 5 minutes. Stir granola, and bake another 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool (will become more crispy as it cools), and store in an airtight container. Makes about 2 cups. ')}
