I make granola a lot. This is my 3rd batch since I moved into my new place June 8th. Excessive? I don't always post about it because a lot of times it is just a repeat performance. I do mix up the ingredients from time to time.
Today I was feeling pretty tropical. My mom has helped me discover used coconut in things. I used to not be a fan, but it is growing on me. This recipe also has dried pineapple and mango in it. YUM! Here's the recipe:

- 1 cup chopped almonds
- 1 cup sunflower seeds

- 1/2 cup dried mango
- 1/2 cup dried pineapple
1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, combine first 5 ingredients.
3. In a pyrex measuring cup, mix together the sugar, honey, oil, water and salt.
4. Heat up goop for 1 minute in the microwave to liquify the siguar.
5. Stir well and then pour over dry ingredients.
6. Mix to coat all oats thoroughly and then transfer mixture to a sheet pan.
7. Cook for an hour and 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
