Pepita Granola

What? Another recipe so soon?? Yes, I know! This recipe is my own little take on a few different granola recipes. It's probably not the HEALTHIEST recipe ever, but it's not horrible. Besides, a quarter-cup of granola is a lot of granola! Anyway, here it is.

Pepita Granola makes 16 1/4-cup servings or 64 tablespoons
Each 1/4-cup serving is about 150 calories or 1 tablespoon = 38 calories

6 T light brown sugar
1/2 C whole almonds
1/4 C pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
3/4 t kosher salt
3 C old-fashioned oats
1/4 C vegetable oil
3 T maple syrup
3 T honey

Preheat oven to 250*.
In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, almonds, pepitas, salt and oats. Stir to combine.
Add oil, syrup, and honey. Stir again.
Pour out onto a baking sheet with a lip. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
Allow to cool and store in an air-tight container.
