Make Your Own Granola


7 C. Oats
1 C. wheat germ
1 C. coconut
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 C. slivered almonds or chopped pecans, etc.
1/4-1/2 C. oil
1/2 C. warm water
1/4-1/2 C. honey
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix above dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

Add liquid to dry ingredients.

Mix thoroughly.

Put in large shallow pans.

Bake at 250 degrees until golden brown and crisp (about 2 to 2 1/2 hours) or bake slowly at 170 for 6-7 hours.

I spread it on two cookie sheets and then about every 30 minutes or so I take a pancake flipper(can't thing of actual name)

and I stir and flip stuff around. So that way everything has a chance to get browned and crunchy.

Sometimes it take longer to cook - so play it by ear.

Oh and you can add things like raisins and dates - but you will want to add them after the granola is cooked- if not they will be quite hard to chew.

This is a very yummy recipe. And it is very economical - especially when you compare the prices of the store bought granola. Plus - home made ones taste better! :O)
