Esalen Granola

8 cups rolled oats
1 cup rye flakes (think flake cereal w/out fruit, corn flake, bran flake, etc)
1 cup almonds, chopped coarsely
1cup cashews, chopped coarsely
½ cup sunflower seeds
2 tsp cinnamon
1tsp sea salt
¾ cup honey
¾ cup maple syrup
½ cup vegetable oil
2Tblsp vanilla

Blend the oats, flakes, nuts: almonds & cashews, and sesame seeds with the cinnamon and salt in a large bowl (or soup pot so you have room to stir) On the stove, mix the honey, syrup, oil and vanilla over low heat. Mix over low heat until well blended, then pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until everything is well coated

Spread a ½ inch thick layer of the wet granola on two 12/16 inch baking trays. Bake in a preheated oven at 325 for an hour or, until granola turns golden brown. Be sure to turn every 5-10 minutes, Remove and allow to cool. Makes approx. 3 lbs.

Notes: The oven was tedious. I love the results but getting a dehydrator has made granola a cinch. I put the mixture into the dehydrator and forget about it for a few hours.

I've made this with variations, add other or additional nuts, fruit, vary the liquid sweeteners--you get the idea
