Spray two large baking sheets with cooking oil and evenly spread the granola onto the pans making sure to make it even. The more evenly divided they are on the pan the more evenly the two pans will bake in sync together.
At 325 degree oven place one pan on the middle and one on the top rack. Bake for 15 mins. Stir and then rotate pans top to bottom and front to back. Continue baking and stirring every 5 minutes, until the granola is golden brown, 10 to 20 more minutes depending on your oven so WATCH IT CAREFULLY.
Make it colorful and full of healthy variety! Here is what we usually keep on hand in the pantry and I use it all. You can use any combination of seeds, nuts, fruit you want as long as it turns out to be about 5- 7 cups. If you’re allergic to tree nuts than you can certainly substitute for peanuts and seeds. I added, mixed tree nuts, peanuts, chia seeds, raw sunflower seeds, walnuts, flax seed ground, chia seeds, dried apricots and craisins. This is your personal granola, make it exactly with what you want with as much or as little as you want.
Prepare your add-ins while you watch the oven by chopping and measuring if needed and add to the big bowl!
This is baked just right!
