One of my favorites, and the kids' too...
All ingredients are organic (including local honey)...and trust me on this, that it's better than any store bought granola...even the store bought organic kind!!
Enjoyed as a snack, while hiking, for a quick breakfast with milk, or with yogurt...
easy and good for you
Here's what you need:
List of dry ingredients:
3 cups oats, uncooked
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup sunflower kernels
optional: coarsely chopped pecans (or walnuts, pine nuts, etc.) 2 cups
combine in the big bowl...
in a separate bowl, mix together the other ingredients:
List of other ingredients:
1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons honey
1/4 cup pure vegetable oil
2 1/2 Tablespoons water
2 T. brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 t. salt
mix thoroughly...and preheat oven to 350*
my pan of choice...
pour your granola mixture onto pan(s)...
Place in oven
Set timer for 25 minutes
Every 5 minutes stir your granola in the pan (being careful not to spill it!)
-the edges of the granola get brown more quickly...so make sure you mix it good-
how to store:
|I use an old glass container with screw top lid|
how does Anne Marie like her granola right now?........a bit of organic yogurt, granola on top (heaven forbid you mix the granola into the yogurt) with raisins on the very tip top
