Simple Granola

We got this recipe from the More with Less cookbook many years ago. We eat it as cereal, stir it into yogurt, and use it for a quick snack. Combine in a large mixing bowl:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 6 cups rolled oats (old fashioned, not quick cooking)
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup wheat germ
  • Blend together in another bowl:
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • Add blended liquids to dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Spread on 2 greased cookie sheets and bake 1 hour at 250 degrees or until dry and golden. Stir occasionally while baking. Let cool and store in air tight container.
