I have a problem where I buy lots of food that is useful and cheap at the grocery store, and but forget that I just bought a whole bunch of it last time. Almond milk, for example-- I have a back stock that could get me through a nuclear apocalypse. I recently found I had two full jars of bulk cornmeal in my pantry-- an ingredient I rarely use, but seem compelled to buy over and over (I recently discovered vegan corncakes, so that worked out okay. Thanks again, Veganomicon!).

Then a few weeks ago I decided that oats are a cheap and healthy commodity, so I bought a whole bunch from the bulk bin. I was feeling pretty good about my purchase until I got home and found out that I already had three full jars of the stuff. So what to do all these oats when you don't even like oatmeal?

Granola! Store-bought granola is always so expensive, far too sweet, and filled with non-vegan honey. But not this stuff! It's not clumpy granola, but it is crispy and delicious.

2 c oats
1 c sunflower seeds
1 c chopped almonds
1 tbs cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp nutmeg

4 tbs maple syrup
4 tsp canola oil
1 tbs vanilla

1 1/2 c dried cranberries
1 tbs canola oil

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Mix together first set of ingredients (oats, nuts, and spices) in a large bowl. Then add the second set (liquids), and stir.
Spread out on a rimmed baking sheet and bake 15 minutes. Remove, stir granola-in-progress thoroughly, and bake another 15 minutes. Remove again, and add the cranberries and extra oil. Stir it up again and bake for another 7 minutes.

Share and enjoy!
