Homemade Granola

We usually eat granola for breakfast. Years ago I found a recipe that was simple and good tasting. We like it with soymilk, nutmilk or yogurt and fruit. We often sprinkle flax seed or hemp on top too. I use a can of apple juice concentrate and dates as the sweetener. I throw that in the blender with some tahini (or almond butter), a bit of grape seed oil, and some cinnamon. Once this is all blended into a slurry, I pour it over the oats and then just bake for a few hours at a low temperature. I've found that if I bake it at 350, as most recipes call for, I invariably end up burning it.
