Granola...YUM!


I love granola topped on my morning yogurt so I was super excited to find a homemade granola recipe. It is super easy to make and will last you for a while. I think it would even make a great gift!



Here's the recipe for you:

HOMEMADE GRANOLA

4 cups rolled oats
1 cup wheat germ
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup vegtable oil
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup water
1 pkg. dried cranberries (I also added some dried strawberries and blueberries to mine)

Heat the oven to 300. Stir together oats, wheat germ, nuts, sesame seeds, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the oil, honey, and water. Stir until well combined and then spread evenly on a cookie sheet. Make sure your sheet has sides on it.

Bake the granola until lightly browned, approximately 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes so it browns evenly. Let it dry and then stir in the dried fruit.
Yield: 7 cups

Pin It!
