Granola

**As Seen In:  Scratch Cooking, a 400+ page e-cookbook with hundreds of from-scratch recipes!**

I am going to share with you two recipes. Both slightly different but yummy in their own ways.  Granola is great with milk for breakfast, added to ice cream or yogurt, made into granola bars, or eaten as a snack!  Make up a big batch and keep it in the pantry.

Ingredients – Granola I

  • 3c oats
  • 1c wheat germ
  • 1/2c chopped walnuts or other nuts
  • 1/2c raisins
  • 1/2c dried cranberries
  • 1/4c maple syrup
  • 2tb molasses
  • 1tsp cinnamon

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 300F.  If your wheat germ and nuts are not yet toasted, toast them now in a dry skillet over high heat until fragrant.
  • Combine all ingredients, mix well.  Transfer to a greased cookie sheet or 9×13 dish.  Bake, stirring often, until golden brown – about 25 minutes.

  • 3c additional dry ingredients such as wheat germ, flax seeds, flour, bran, etc.
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1c honey
  • 1c coconut oil or butter
  • Dried fruit of choice, such as raisins, cranberries, etc.

Method:

  3. Heat honey and butter or oil together until oil/butter has melted and honey is runny.  Mix into dry ingredients.
