    4 cups oatmeal
    1/2 cup crushed raw almonds
    1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
    1/3 cup honey
    1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
    1/2 cup of dried fruits (cranberries, mango, peach, etc) - optional

    Whisk together honey and oil. Stir together all ingredients until evenly coated. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes, stirring frequently. As the granola bakes, it'll reach a point where it'll start to toast really quickly, so make sure you keep an eye on it. It's like toasting pine nuts...no one likes burned nuts! Store in an airtight container.

    It is delicious, and it's quite healthy as well. I throw some in my yogurt, or sprinkle them onto my salad - it is yummy!!!

    Oh Gosh no - last time I made a big batch like that, it lasted for the whole month. I love to cook and eat, but I always watch out by eating small portions instead.
