Honey Granola Recipe


Honey Granola Recipe: Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) and place rack in the center of the oven. Either butter (oil) or spray a baking sheet with a non stick vegetable spray.

In a large bowl combine the rolled oats, nuts, seeds, wheat germ (if using), ground cinnamon, and salt. 

In a small saucepan, stirring constantly, bring just to a boil the water, oil, honey, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients and toss together, making sure all the dry ingredients are coated with the liquid. Spread onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 35 - 40 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally so the mixture browns evenly. (The browner the granola gets (without burning) the crunchier the granola will be.) Place on a wire rack to cool. You will notice that the granola may still be sticky and soft when it is first removed from the oven, but it will become crisp and dry as it cools. Make sure to break up any large clumps of granola while the mixture is still warm. Once the granola has completely cooled, store in an airtight container or plastic bag in the refrigerator. It will keep for several weeks.

Can serve plain or with dried and/or fresh fruit and milk.

Makes about 5 cups.
