Mom’s Granola

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 my Mom’s 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.

To make it, you mix together some rolled oats, wheat germ, shredded coconut, sunflower seeds, pecans, and almonds. Then is a sauce pan, you add brown sugar, what, vegetable oil, honey, molasses, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla. Stir together and bring the mixture to a boil. After this is boiling, you mix it with the oat mixture.

Next, you will divide the mixture and pour on two sheet pans. Then you bake it in a 300 degree oven stirring occasionally. The recipe says to cook it for 20-30 minutes. I like my granola super crunchy for a cook mine for a total of 45 minutes. Allow the granola to cool and store in airtight containers. It will keep like this for up to 6 months.
