Quest Depot Deluxe Granola

Quest Depot Deluxe Granola

  • 2½ cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 ounces pecan halves
  • 2 ounces walnut halves
  • 2 ounces sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup dry roasted salted sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup dry milk powder
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup walnut oil
  • ½ cup honey
  • 6 ounces dried cherries
  • 3 ounces chopped sugar dates or chopped dried figs
  • 3 ounces dried blueberries
  • 3 ounces raisins

Preheat oven to 350°.  Liberally coat a 13″ by 9″ glass pan with cooking spray.  In a very large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients.  In a 2-cup glass measure, whisk together the oil and honey.  Pour over the oat mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon.  Pour into the pan (don’t bother washing bowl) and bake for a total of 30 minutes.  Stir with the wooden spoon at 10 and 20 minutes.  Remove and let cool in pan for one hour.

Meanwhile, combine the dried fruits in the bowl.  Break up the oat mixture with the wooden spoon; pour this into the bowl and mix well.  Store in an airtight container at room temperature.  Makes about 9 cups.
