Dreaming of Pie...

I LOVE RHUBARB!
It's up, and I'm dreaming of pie..
I LOVE PIE!
But I have to wait. It's not ready.
I'm waiting.
While I wait, I'll make granola.

I LOVE GRANOLA!
On top of plain yogurt with honey drizzled on.
I LOVE MY GRANOLA!
ENJOY!
4 cups oats
1 cup almonds - slivered or sliced
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup chopped pecans - buy whole pecans and do a rough chop - it's better!
1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup honey.
Mix all ingredients together really well in a large bowl. Spread out on two cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for 14 minutes at 300. Remove from oven and let cool completely on the parchment paper.
Picking away at the edges is highly recommended while waiting.
Once cool, pick up the parchment edges, and let granola run into your container for storage. It crumbles and stays lumpy in spots. It's a lovely thing.
You can also add 1/4 cup of flax seed - I was out.
