Today's the day to share a favorite recipe--here's our family's current favorite:
Oatmeal Cookie Granola with Raisins
10 c. oats
1-1/2 c. wheat germ
1-1/2 c. coconut
2-1/2 c. chopped walnuts
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. maple syrup
3/4 c. honey
1/2 c. oil
1/2 c. margarine
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 c. raisins (opt.)
Combine oats, wheat germ, coconut, and walnuts in large pan or bowl. Set aside.
Combine all remaining ingredients except raisins in saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Pour over dry ingredients; stir till evenly coated. Spread on 2 foil-lined baking sheets. Bake at 325 for 20-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. (Add raisins during last 10 minutes, if desired.) Let cool completely; remove from baking sheets and store tightly covered.
This is absolutely delicious--Wes takes it in his bucket EVERY night, and the kids eat it almost every morning for breakfast. Please note that this is a "loose" granola, more like cereal, rather than "chunky."
