Bake at 325 degrees, stirring every 10 minutes until golden brown. Let cool before putting in an air-tight storage container. Granola will stay fresh for several weeks.
Two Elk Dessert Bars
Combine nuts together on a cookie sheet pan and toast in 350 F oven to a light golden brown, about 15 minutes, turning once to make sure nuts are toasted evenly. Set aside to cool. At same temperature, toast oats to a light golden brown, about 15 minutes. Set aside to cool. In a large bowl, combine nuts, oats, coconut and chocolate chips. Fold in condensed milk until combined. In a second bowl, mix melted butter with graham cracker crumbs, then spread evenly on bottom of a baking sheet or shallow baking pan. Bake at 350 F oven for 8-10 minutes to form a crust. Dollop batter over crust; use spatula to even out. (Dip spatula in hot water periodically to help soften batter while spreading.) Bake to a light golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Cut into bars.
*Note: Grape leaves should be washed and stems removed.In a large bowl place the lamb, rice, onions, parsley, mint, pine nuts, lemon juice, olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper. Mix the ingredients together so that they are well combined. Lay a grape leaf out flat. Place approximately 3 ounces of the lamb mixture in the center of the grape leaf. Fold over the stem end. Fold over both sides and roll up the grape leaf so that the lamb mixture is completely encased. Repeat this process until all of the meat mixture is used. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Place the stuffed grape leaves in the dish so that they are tightly packed. Cover the stuffed grape leaves with water and bake them for one hour.
