Great Granola!

Monday is usually our baking day, but last night Virginia needed something to do, so we made granola together. I thought I'd post the recipe we use.

Sara's Great Granola

3 cups quick oats
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup organic sugar (or brown or raw)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey

Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Mix all ingredients thoroughly, then spread onto a large, buttered baking sheet. Bake 30 minutes, stirring once half way through baking time, and once when done. Cool completely before storing. Add dried fruits and nuts if desired. We usually double the recipe because the 5 of us eat it up pretty fast.

Jon, the coconut is optional :).

You can also add a tsp. of cinnamon for additional flavor. Mmmm...

Oooh, good reminder. I've been wanting some recipes that Millie can put together with minimal help from me. Granola would be a good one!
