Mom’s Granola

by Laura

My mom made this granola recipe growing up. Most of the time it was for a special occasion like my dad’s birthday. My dad loves this granola recipe. Well, his birthday is this week so I decided to make it for him. I have changed the recipe a little from the original. This granola is good plain or it’s good with fruit and yogurt.

Mom’s Granola
10 cups rolled oats
1 cup wheat germ
1/2 pound shredded coconut
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 cup pecans
1 1/2 cup almonds
1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cup vegetable oil (I used canola)
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup molasses
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a large pot combine the first 6 ingredients. In a sauce pan combine the remain ingredients and cook until dissolved (do not boil). Combine both mixtures. Put mixture onto two sheet cake pans. Bake for 20-30 minutes stirring occasionally. If you want it crunchy cook for 15 minutes longer (this is what I do). Cool. Store in a sealed container. With keep for 6 months.
