    Here is the recipe I use for granola. Easy to make and very delicious (not too sweet).

    Granola

    2c whole wheat flour
    6c rolled oats
    1c coconut
    1c wheat germ
    (Combine above in lg mixing bowl)

    blend together separately:
    1/2c water
    1c oil
    1c honey or corn syrup (definitely prefer honey)
    2tsp vanilla
    1Tbsp salt (I usually use 1 tsp or less...who needs more salt?s)
    Nuts/dried fruit to taste. (I add after baking because I think it dries them out too much if added).

    Add blended liquids to dry ingredients and mix together well.

    Spread out on 2 cookie sheets and bake 1 hour at 250 or until dry and golden. When you check it for doneness, remember it will crispen as it cools. I add nuts/dried fruits after it has baked). Store in covered containers.

    It makes a lot so I usually make only half the recipe. Also if you stir it while baking, it won't form clumps as well. Your choice! If you don't use coconut, you can add an extra handful or two of oats. I also add cinnamon to the liquids. I add nuts (slivered almonds, walnuts, pecans, whatever) and dried fruits (craisins, dried blueberries (available at Costco) after taking it out of the oven. You can also add milk/water and cook in microwave if you like oatmeal.I carry small baggies of the dry granola when I travel for a quick snack. Very delicious over greek yogurt with a drizzle of honey and fresh fruit. Heavenly!!

    Here is the recipe that I have used for years--and actually I eat most every morning.
    8 cups of oatmeal (I like the quick oats)
    1 1/2 cup sugar -------mix together.
    In pyrex pitcher, melt 1 cup butter.
    Add 2 tsp. vanilla and 2 tsp salt. Mix together and pour over the oatmeal mixture. Mix it well so the oats looks damp.
    Put in 2 9x13 pans in into a 330 degree oven for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. (I set the timer) Let cool in the pans and break up any lumps before storing. You may add cranberries, raising, nuts, etc. when you go to eat it.

    I have been making this recipe for many years and eat it nearly every morning with fresh fruit and yogurt:

    4-5 cups old fashioned oats
    1 cup wheat germ or bran (or mix)
    1 cup milled flax seed
    1 cup shredded coconut
    1 cup raw sunflower seeds
    1 cup sliced almonds (or pecans, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, etc)
    Mix all of this together in baking pan. Then in a sauce pan heat together:
    3/4 cup vegetable oil
    1/2 cup honey
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    Drizzle over the oats mixture and blend until well coated. Bake at 325 degrees, stirring often until lightly browned. Let it cool in the pan without stirring, then break it up and store in an airtight container. I don't bake raisins or dried fruit in with it because they get too hard. You can add them when eating it, though I prefer fresh fruit. I eat this granola on ice cream, pudding and fruit salad, too.
