Granola...the ultimate "hippie" food (granola people, good for a laugh). Whatever, I love it! Especially the aroma, when its baking in the oven. This is a great alternative to all the crap cereal out there in the world.
For the parfait part I used a "fancy" glass, as my daughter likes to call it. Scooped a little raspberry soy yogurt into the bottom, sprinkled granola over top, finished with another blob of the yogurt and frozen wild blueberry's.
This recipe is adapted from the Rebar cookbook, one of my favorites pre-vegan. You can add whatever dried fruit, nuts or seeds you love, that's the best part. Its super easy to make and keeps in an airtight container for up to a month!!
- 4 cups traditional rolled oats
- 1 cup kamut flakes
- 1/2 cup oat bran
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup almonds ( sliced, whole, or slivered)

- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 Tbsp ground cardamon
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground clove
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil

- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup raisins
Combine all dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
In a smaller bowl, whisk wet together.
Pour wet into dry and stir until evenly coated.
Spread into two 9 by 13 cake pans ( so when you stir it up, it stay in the pan).
Bake at 275, stirring it up every 15 minutes for 45 minutes.
Bake until lightly golden.
Add raisins once cooled.
