In the mood for Granola?

JoEllyn's Favorite Granola

  • 6 cups regular rolled oats -- Bake alone on a baking sheet for
    10 minutes @ 350 degrees
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1/2 cup nuts (pecans are good in this recipe)
  • 1/2 cup raw wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup dry milk powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

MIX DRY INGREDIENTS TOGETHER

Combine the following and mix with dry ingredients

  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 2/3 cup oil ( I've cut down on the oil to 1/3 cup, but try to see what you like)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Spray pans with cooking spray and bake @ 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring twice.


It will look undercooked but gets crunchy as it cools.


Variation:

  • use almonds/walnuts/sesame seeds -- instead of pecans and coconut
  • use 2 scoops protein powder -- instead of dried milk
  • nutmeg -- instead of cinnamon, but you may want to use less as nutmeg can be a stronger flavor than cinnamon
