Title:   Maple-Walnut Granola
Category:   Breakfast - Clean (Only natural/organic ingredients), Vegetarian
From:   Neal Barnard
6 c old-fashioned rolled oats
1 c barley or brown rice flour
1 c coarsely chopped walnuts
1 c raw sunflower seeds
1/2 t sea salt
1 c clean frozen apple juice concentrate- thawed (undiluted)
1/2 c pure maple syrup
2 T organic canola oil
2 T water
2 t vanilla extract
1 c raisins
Directions:   preheat oven to 325F. Combine oats, flour, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together juice concentrate, maple syrup, oil, water and vanilla. Pour over dry ingredients and mix thoroughly until evenly moistened. Divide mixture between two large pans, spreading it out into a one-inch-thick layer. Bake until golden brown, about 50 to 60 minutes. Stir well every 15 minutes, then spread mixture back to a one-inch-thick layer before returning it to oven. When granola is finished baking, remove from oven and stir in raisins while granola is still hot. Steam from the hot cereal will help plump the raisins. Let cool completely. Store in airtight containers in the refrigerator.
Makes:   about 10 cups
