Birthday Apricot Granola

Dave loves granola made with molasses. So I found this recipe and saved it for him for his birthday.

Adapted from Bake it Pretty

4 cups rolled oats
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup hulled sunflower seeds
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup molasses
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups chopped dried apricots
  1. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Mix oats, nuts, and seeds together in a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer.
  3. Separately whisk together oil, molasses, salt, brown sugar and nutmeg.
  4. Stir wet and dry ingredients together until well mixed.
  5. Spread the granola evenly between the 2 pans.
  6. Bake for about 50 minutes, stirring granola and rotating the pans at least every 15 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven when it’s evenly golden, and allow the granola to cool completely in the pan.
  8. In a large bowl, mix granola pieces with the chopped, dried apricots. I had to split this into two large bowls to mix in properly!
