Granola is great eaten as cereal, sprinkled on applesauce, or parfaited (that's a word, right?) with yogurt and berries. Mix and match your add ins to make it how YOU want it!
Granola8 cups regular oats
1 pkg dried mixed berries (about 6 oz)
1 cup sweet shredded coconut
1/2 cup wheat germ
4 oz sliced almonds
1/2 cup canola oil
2/3 cup honey
2 Tablespoons vanilla
That is the original recipe. It can be switched up many ways. My photos reflect a granola made without the berries, coconut, or almonds. I instead used pecans and left out the others. You can add milled flax, raisins, craisins, walnuts, whatever your heart/taste desires!
Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separate the mix together. Make sure all the dry ingredients are coated well. Dump onto 2 large jelly roll pans. Bake for 20-30 minutes at 325 degrees stirring every 5-10 minutes. If you don't stir, parts of it will want to burn.
Your granola should be a nice golden brown. It will still seem sticky but will dry out as it cools. As it cools I continue to stir it now and then. We store in the cupboard in a half gallon jar.
My husband eats his with our homemade vanilla goat yogurt and frozen blueberries.
