Almond Coconut Granola

I ran across this recipe at the following and going to try it (or some version of it) sometime.

From Gourmet, Feb 99 (Epicurious) :

Almond Coconut Granola
  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 1/3 cup hulled green pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup mixed dried fruits such as raisins, cherries, and apricots

Preheat oven to 325°F.

In a large bowl stir together oats, almonds, coconut, pumpkin or sunflower seeds, and salt. In a small saucepan melt butter with honey over low heat, stirring. Pour butter mixture over oat mixture and stir until combined well.

In a large jelly-roll pan spread granola evenly and bake in middle of oven, stirring halfway through baking, until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Cool granola in pan on a rack and stir in dried fruits.

Granola may be kept in an airtight container at cool room temperature 2 weeks.
