2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/3 cup raisins (optional)
Preheat oven to 300.
In a large bowl, mix together oats, sunflower seeds, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
Then set that aside…
In a small saucepan, warm up the applesauce with honey and oil over low heat.
Mix the applesauce/honey/oil mixture into the oat mixture, stir well. Spread the mixture onto a 9 x 13 baking pan.
Bake for 45 – 50 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until the granola is a deep brown. Remove and stir in raisins. Cool completely before enjoying.
