Amazing Granola

Trying to get the family to eat a little healthier is not always an easy task.  Barbi does the best at healthy eating, and I truly am trying to, but sometimes those unhealthy carbs just taste sooo good!  We’ve all heard that a good breakfast is the best meal of the day.  Here is a great recipe for homemade granola.  It can be eaten as a cold cereal with low-fat milk or warmed in the microwave to eat on a chilly fall morning.  Need an afternoon snack?  Just grab a handful to eat to help tide you over till dinner!

Amazing Granola

5 cups old fashioned oats

1 cup sunflower seeds

1 cup wheat germ

1 cup peanuts

1/2 cup to 1 cup powdered milk

1 tbsp. cinnamon

1 cup chopped nuts

*optional ingredients:  one cup each of raisins, dried cranberries; dried blueberries;  sesame seeds or coconut flakes.

Place all these ingredients in a large bowl and mix together well.

Combine 1 cup honey with 3/4 cup vegetable oil. Warm this in the microwave a few seconds to stir the honey better.  Pour over dry ingredients and stir very well, until all is coated.

Spread on large cookie sheet (might need 2) and bake at 250 degrees for about 30 minutes.  Stir every 10 minutes to ensure even browning.

Store in an air-tight container.
