Your Own Granola

Hooray! Dave recovered a few of my photo files. I'll upload granola today.

3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup wheat germ
2.5 cups of nuts, seeds, etc.
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 t salt
1 t vanilla

Mix together the honey, brown sugar, molasses, vanilla, salt and oil in a bowl.

mix together oats, wheat bran, and a mixture of whichever nuts, seeds, etc. you like in a separate bowl. I used sliced almonds, coconut and pecans this time.

Pour the honey mixture over the oat mixture and stir until the dry ingredients are completely coated.
Divide the granola between two cookie sheets and spread evenly over the sheets.

Bake at 300º for 30 - 40 minutes. Some people stir the granola while it is cooking, but I let it cook and then stir it while it is cooling on the hot pans.

Mmmm. My kids eat it hot out of the oven, so it's hard to keep around until it cools enough to put in a container for breakfasts. They say it tastes like oatmeal cookies when it is hot.
