Yesterday I made a batch of granola. It's my favorite granola recipe. It's my only granola recipe. I copied it out of the newspaper when I was in college at SUNY Buffalo. That was so long ago, that I don't even remember the name of the newspaper. I guess I should be thankful that I remember as much as I do.
4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut
1 TBSP cinnamon
1 cup of chopped nuts (walnuts, almonds, cashews, pepitas -- whatever you prefer. My favorite combo is almonds and cashews.)
1/2 cup oil
2/3 cup honey
1 TBSP vanilla
Mix together all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Place oil and honey in a small saucepan. Heat on low until it is thin and runny. Stir in vanilla.
Pour over the dry ingredients and stir well.
Spread on 2 cookie sheets and bake at 325 for 20-30 minutes. Stir often to prevent burning.
Remove from oven and let cool. Store in airtight containers.
