"I've been making this granola for more than a year. I often get requests for the recipe. It's loaded with a variety of nuts and flavored with cinnamon and vanilla. An excellent choice for topping yogurt or ice cream. I prefer 'extra-thick'-style rolled oats."

I followed recipe (left out sunflower seeds) but coconut and almonds browned too quickly. I would lower heat and add coconut and almonds toward the end. Oven is calibrated correctly, so it was not my oven. Also seems like a lot of oil and sugar, so will modify this recipe significantly, for health and for better results.

I have stored this granola at room temp. It will last several months as any dry cereal. It can also be put in the fridge or freezer for longer storage. Hope you enjoy!
