My Favorite Granola
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling
I *love* this recipe. I skip the sunflower seeds, and use ground flax seed instead of wheat germ. I cut the oil to 2 T. and the brown sugar to 2 T. also. After it bakes I add in 1/2 c. dried cranberries. It is delicious.
I make this frequently and love, love, love it. I have tried variations on the ingredients and it always turns out delicious. I sub sliced almonds for the nuts (i have braces) and add wheat bran instead of germ, and it is great. You can cook it for a little less time if you want a softer granola. You can also add 2 tsps of cinnamon for a good flavor. Raisins are good too, but I would add them after the granola is out of the oven or they are too hard & dry.
Very easy, great recipe. Not too sweet and very crunchy. I can't believe granola can be so easy. I can't wait to try adding things to mix it up a bit.
This is a great recipe. Next time I will probably make it a bit sweeter by adding more honey or brown sugar, but that's just my taste.
