Getting kids to eat anything for breakfast can often be a challenge. But one taste of this slightly sweet granola and they'll be hooked!
- 15 cups old-fashioned oats (about 3 pounds)
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 cup toasted wheat germ
- 1 cup sunflower kernels
- 1 package (14 ounces) flaked coconut

- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon maple flavoring
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup raisins, optional

"This granola is great! I replace the walnuts with almonds, omitted the sunflower seeds & added more pecans. We love it on our yogurt!"
