I have had a couple people ask me lately how I make my granola so I thought I would share my recipe with you.
This granola is so good and super easy to make.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line 2 baking sheets
Combine the following in a large bowl and set aside
8 c rolled oats
1 1/2 c wheat germ
1 1/2 c oat bran
1/2 c flax seed
1 c chopped almonds
1 c chopped pecans
Then add together the following ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to boil.
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 maple syrup
3/4 c honey
1/4 c veg oil
1 Tbs cinnamon
1 Tbs vanilla
Remove from heat and pour over dry ingredients. Stir to coat and spread evenly onto baking sheets
bake approx 20 mins. Stir once half way through and bake until crispy then remove.
Once cooled stir in raisens and dates
1 c raisens
1 c chopped dates
Just a note:
As far as the nuts and fruit, I usually throw in whatever I have on hand or in season and really anything goes here, it definitely doesnt have to be exact. You might want to throw a few spoonfulls on some yogurt or on a warm day some vanilla bean ice cream, YUM!
