    Prep wet & dry ingredients

    • In large bowl, toss together oats, almonds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.
    • In medium bowl, toss together golden raisins and dried cranberries.
    • In medium saucepan, stir together honey, canola oil, brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon salt and ½ cup water.
    • Place over medium heat and stir until honey and brown sugar have dissolved, about 3 minutes. Do not let mixture simmer or boil.

  2. step

    Combine wet & dry ingredients

    • Add three-fourths of honey mixture to bowl with oat mixture; stir well. Oats should feel wet but there should not be extra liquid in bowl; add a few tablespoons more oats if needed.

  5. step

    Add candied ginger & cool

    • After baking for a total of 1½ hours, let granola cool to room temperature. If nuts and oats are crunchy, granola is done. If they are chewy, bake at 300°F for 15 minutes more.
