Every other week I mix up a huge batch (4x the recipe below) of homemade granola. We eat it as cereal, on yogurt and anything else that it will enhance for the moment. Daddy and I eat it every morning. It sticks with you and is an excellent source of good stuff! I have played with the recipe for several years to get a good balance between good-for-you and taste. This recipe is our favorite. The great thing about granola is that you can make changes to match your taste buds. Add more sugar. Reduce the sugar. Only use honey. Add nuts and dried fruit. The choice is yours!
7 cup oats
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup flax
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 T oil
1 T vanilla
1/4 cup nuts (optional)
1/4 cup coconut (optional)
1/4 cup raisins (optional) – Add after baking

How long does this store?
We keep it in a tight container for about 2-3 weeks and it is fine. The only time that we have had trouble is when I didn't cook (dry) it long enough. You can also refrigerate it which will help it last longer.
Do you have a printable recipe for your granola and granola bars? Either a link or just all in one place so I can copy and print.
I don't but let me work on that and I will get it added. I will share on our Facebook pages when they are finished. Thanks for asking.
Thank you – how about one for the granola?
