I love homemade granola and this is my favorite recipe. You can vary the ingredients to your liking, but this is my favorite combination.
- 5 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 cup wheat germ
- 1 cup powdered milk
- 1 cup sliced almonds
- 1/2 cup sesame seeds
- 1 cup coconut
- 1 cup honey
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
Mix all dry ingredients together in a large roasting pan. Mix honey and oil together and pour over dry ingredients. Stir. Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
- If raisins or other dried fruits are desired, add after cooking
- To reduce calories, use 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup oil
- Powdered milk is added to increase nutrition, can be omitted
- Can add or substitute bran, flax seed, pecans, walnuts, etc.
