1 Tablespoon "DRAM Hair of the Dog" Bitters<
-1 cup buckwheat
-3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
-1 cup raw sunflower seeds, hulled
-1/2 cup millet
-1 1/4 cup almonds
-3/4 cup pure maple syrup
-1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
-1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
-1 teaspoon coarse salt
Heat oven to 250 degrees. Combine oats, sunflower seeds, buckwheat, almonds, syrup, olive oil, sugar, bitters and salt in a large bowl and mix well. Spread granola mixture in an even layer on a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for around 45min. Stir every 10-15 minutes to ensure the granola gets evenly toasted.
Remove granola from oven and season with a pinch of salt to taste. Let cool completely before serving. Store unused portion in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
